How to Knit Book

Carol’s Thoughts: I had always wanted to learn to knit, but never had the time to dedicate to learning. Now that I’m fully retired, I have a lot of spare time on my hands and I’m ready to learn.

The author did a great job of using step-by-step diagrams to teach you the basic knitting stitches. It’s all laid out in an easy-to-understand and to follow format. The author teaches you about different yarns, yarn weight, supplies & tools that you need and so forth.

Once you’ve learned some of the basic stitches you’re ready to move onto some of the products in the book. The projects include: pillow covers, tablet covers, placemats, fingerless gloves, cushion covers, coasters and more. All of the projects include easy step-by-step instructions and color photos.

As soon as I’m done mastering the crochet book that I featured earlier this week, I’ll be moving onto knitting. I’m looking forward to getting started soon!
