Getting Started Knitting by Jennifer Worick

Like a fun, gossipy friend who knows how to knit, this guide gently initiates novice knitters by getting them comfortable with the rhythm of casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, and binding off—before graduating to simple projects that introduce rib, seed, stockinette, and garter stitches on straight, circular, and double-pointed needles. Advancing from the ribbed scarf and roll-brim hat to "Ballet School Dropout Leg Warmers" and "Belle of the Ball Cardigan," lessons also cover shopping, chart-reading, weaving in ends, starting a new ball of yarn, blocking, and adding zippers and buttons. The appendices offer further enlightenment—with a glossary of knitting lingo, a plan for "The Knitter's Pantry," and a guide to undoing mistakes.
