Teach Yourself Visually Knitting is one reference book necessary for newbies like myself who need to check up on various stitches. It also has easy patterns to help anyone get started. After borrowing it from the library I knew I'd always need it at home. It was great that a 2nd ed. came out just as I was deciding on my purchase.

If it hadn't been for this book I think I would've just given up on learning how to knit. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The pictures show each step instead of one picture here and there. Thanks to this book all the other books I purchased before it finally make sense.

I saw this book at my knitting class which a classmate brought in, I started looking through it and fell in love with it right away. The pictures are sensational and the instructions are very thorough. It's not only for beginners, there are lots of patterns and ideas that you could use once you've become more experienced.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to ANYONE who wants to learn to knit!! Being that I'm just learning how to knit myself, and have searched the web, and other books, this book has to be the BEST!! I have found myself actually learning how to knit with ease, and for anyone who wants to learn to knit this is a book that you should really check out, it's not only great for adults but for kids as well!

I needed a book to help review all the 'how-to's' once a friend taught me to knit. This book has great color photos which are very easy to follow as well as some great extra's--various stitch patterns, fixes, great basic patterns and a breakdown of sizing. I have several books now but always seem to find myself going back to this book. Don't know what I would do without it!

I flipped through SO many how-to knitting books and this is the one that came home with me. The photos are amazing as it is often hard to understand line drawings. This book is a must have for beginners as it discusses casting on, the knit stitch, purl stitch, casting off, etc... This book has so much good stuff in it and is organized so well. There are chapters on fixing mistakes like dropped stitches, chapter on simple patterns and projects to get your started -- some are for beginners others are a bit more challenging but that is good because this is a book that you will grow with as your skills get better, has an awesome chapter on different types of patterns you can make once you have mastered the knit-purl stithces in different combinations, chapter on inserting colored patterns, etc.... This is an all around best knitting book to have. The color photos are great, and as a beginner, I found that this book has tons of stuff as well as more challenging information to use as my skills get better.

I had just started and I didn't know very much. But then it all just came to me in this one big book. But I just feel like they should give you more DIRECTIONS!!!! It makes me MAD seeing this beautiful project and not being able to do it. My first intarsia motif was horrible and I was making for my moms birthday and it was only 5 days away. Don't do any of the harder projects unless you want long hard challenge.

Very easy to use for learning how to knit.

I had never knitted before in my life. I got this book and was knitting the basics in about a week! I have recommended it to family and friends. Some of the pictures are hard to follow, but using the text and the pictures and with a little patience, I was knitting in no time.

I saw this book in the bookstore and really liked it. I like that there are TONS of pictures of REAL people's hands. So much easier to understand than sketches or line drawings. A book definitely for beginners or for knitters with experience that want a great reference guide. Also has different knitting techniques to learn as you gain more confidence and skill in your knitting.

I hadn't knitted for since I was a child. I found this book and the illustrations are wonderful and simple to understand. No more long drawn out reading. Lots of helpful information. The perfect reference book for knitters.
