The Knitter's Bible: The Complete Handbook for Creative Knitters
The essential handbook for knitters of all skill levels. Getting Started goes back to basics, with an overview of the yarns and equipment available today. It then takes you, step-by-step, through the basics of knitting, with knit and purl, casting on and binding (casting) off, and reading patterns. Creative Options expands upon the basics with further techniques, while Exploring Choices will provide even the experienced knitter with new ideas for interesting projects. The Stitch Library will become an indispensable reference to be constantly referred to. Finally, a wide selection of Patterns and Projects, linked back to the techniques throughout the book, provide plenty opportunites to explore your developing skills and experiment with a variety of motifs to liven up any knitting.
