Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook : Instructions, Patterns, and Advice for a New Generation of Knitters Paperback
The Stitch 'n Bitch Handbook covers every aspect of knitting and the knitting-together lifestyle: the how-to, the when-to, the what-to and why-to.
Writing with wit and attitude, Debbie Stoller explains why young women are taking up knitting in droves and covers everything you need to know to get your knit on - from the tools of the trade to casting on and binding off to getting fancy - all with step-by-step illustrated techniques.
Then it's time to pick up the sticks: at the heart of this book are forty stylish patterns that are as hip to wear as they are to knit, as good for beginners as they are for purly pros.

Review by LadyAttercop
Some cute patterns, and EASY knitting instructions. I taught myself to k1, p2 using this book.
Review by rainwood
A decent beginning knitting book, however some of the instructions are hard to follow and the patterns are going to be dated in a few years. Not destined for "classics" status. Great that it got folks to sit up and start knitting though!
Review by Crowyhead
This is one of the handiest, most fun knitting books I own!
Review by kukkurovaca
Great sense of humor, okay instructions, crappy illustrations. Bonus points for importance in the push to make knitting "cool."
Review by snoflingor
Good book to get you started but I've found that the how-to part of the book has it's limitations so I picked up Vogue Knitting. Flipping through the book last night it is a far superior reference book (though the patterns given are pretty dowdy looking).
