Knitting for the Absolute Beginner, Spiral bound

Knitting for the Absolute Beginner Spiral bound


Previously published as The Beginner's Guide to Knitting (978-1-90397-583-1), this popular book has been given a completely new and updated look.

Now in a handy small format that fits comfortably in a bag and wire-bound so that it lies open while you are working, it also has a useful fold-out flap at the back that provides a quick and easy reference to all the abbreviations used in the patterns.

All the essential techniques are covered, including basic garter and stocking stitch, casting on and casting off, and increasing and decreasing, all clearly explained using step-by-step photographs and simple instructions.

Alison's designs have a timeless appeal that will delight knitters of all ages, and there are projects for children as well as adults.

Within a few pages you will be knitting a fabulous stripy scarf, and by the end of the book you will be able to knit yourself a gorgeous cable-knit cardigan!

Packed full of helpful tips and simple projects, this is a 'must-have' book for anyone who would love to knit but doesn't know how to.
