The Knit Stitch
The Knitting Experience, Book 1
The Knitting Revolution? What`s
revolutionary about knitting today is who is knitting (the new knitters are
young women and retiring baby-boomers), what they are knitting (exciting
yarns and projects), and most of all, why they are knitting (it feels good:
the process, its creative and relaxing qualities, is at least as important
to them as what they are knitting). What better time for a fresh approach to
the learn-to-knit book?
Join The Knitting Revolution focuses on the knit stitch. With introductory
chapters titled The Basics of Knitting, What You Need to Know Before You
Begin a Project, and So You`re Ready to Start Knitting, this primer is the
closest thing betweeen two covers to a knitting coach. Hundreds of clear,
step-by-step photographs take you through each skill. Always the goal is to
show you what you need to know when you need to know it. Choices are given,
so each knitter can find the way that works best. Then the skills are put to
work (and into a meaningful context) in the chapter`s projects. Loads of
tips and special attention to details ensure that absolute beginners can
complete any of the more-than-30 projects successfully; class, yet fun
designs assure that they will want to. Like knitting today, this book is
personal, passionate, powerful—exactly what the new knitter is looking for
and irresistible to the already-converted.
One of the best selling Knitting reference manuals in print. It covers everything from the basic stitches to gauge, joins, seams,
borders, buttonholes and more. Fits neatly into your knitting bag, and a
must for every new or established knitter.
