How to Knit

This is the ultimate guide for the absolute beginner. For those with little or no knitting experience, this simple-to-learn, project-based book will start with the basics and take you through the initial stages of this fun and creative craft.  Each technique is clearly explained and accompanied by a stylish project to make, so that you can put your newly acquired knowledge into practice. Demonstrate your new skills to friends and family with designs that include a hobo bag, beanie hat or clutch bag. Beginners will learn all the essentials, from how to hold needles, cast on and off, make a tension swatch and form the basic knit and purl stitches, to how to knit stripes, cable, rib and lace, plus shape their knitting and add buttonholes. Clear step-by-step illustrations and beautifully shot photographs of the finished projects are included throughout, making it both practical and inspirational – the ideal book for want-to-be knitters!
