Never thought that YOU could knit? Well, with Learn How to Knit with 50 Squares, you will discover all the essential skills that you need, one stitch at a time. Learn a new stitch by knitting a square, following a clear step-by-step tutorial and chart. By the time you've finished the square, you've practiced the new stitch, and you're ready to move on to the next one-quick and easy!

The squares are organized according to skill level, progressing from basic knit and purl stitches to more challenging techniques, such as cable and lace. And at the back of the book you'll find a handful of inspirational projects that show you how to combine your blocks for unique and stylish results.

This has been an excellent book for me! I have found so much ways to create new designs and learn how to do them with step by step guidance, which is illustrated. The colors of the yarn used and photo guidance just makes this book so interesting to read and use to help create. Excellent book, great for beginners!
