I have been waiting for a book like this forever. A clear, easy to follow book that covers not just how to knit, but how to do all the other things knitters need to know how to do to successfully complete not just their first scarf, but their first sweater.
The first in a new series, Rowan’s ‘Learn to Knit: The Basics’ takes the beginner through essential knitting skills such as casting on, casting off, and the basic knit and purl stitch. Building on these instructions, they can move onto combinations of stitches and begin to incorporate the next level of skills. Expert tips and advice appear throughout.
A series of 12 simple patterns enables consolidation of the skills learned throughout the book, each encouraging, inspiring and developing confidence. Clear, easy to follow, step-by-step illustrations provide a reference for the new knitter to have at their fingertips, and the book is sized to be easily carried in a knitting bag. Perfect for every new knitter, this book is also an important resource for anyone teaching a friend.
