Knitting is more than just a way to make something. With minimal investment of time and money, you'll soon discover that the process is relaxing and even therapeutic. You may look forward to your quiet time with needles and yarn as the best part of your day.
This book teaches you a range of knitting skills, from the most simple, basic ones to more advanced techniques that will launch you confidently into the full spectrum of knitting options. Each chapter begins by teaching the skills needed to make the projects in that chapter.

  • Shaping by increasing and decreasing stitches (Project: Leaf Edge Shawl)
  • Knitting in the round with circular needles (Project: Easy Knit Hat)
