POCKET BOOK OF KNITTING

by Claire Gelder

Get started and learn the basics with this pocket-sized, no-nonsense guide to knitting!

From best-selling author and crafting queen Claire Gelder, this gorgeous mini guide is packed full of knitting know-how, practical illustrations and three simple projects.

Perfect for complete beginners, this book breaks down everything you need to know about knitting:

  • how to read a ball band
  • how to get tension correct
  • how to choose needles and yarns
  • how to cast on and how to read abbreviations and knitting patterns
 The book is structured as a simple 3-step course that will help you progress from bronze to gold as your skills and confidence grow. Start with the basic stitches and simple joining, build up a few more stitches for your collection, then finally add in some simple shaping and some pompoms. Before you know it you’ll be knitting a garter stitch scarf, herringbone stitch blanket and a loop stitch cushion.

Filled with affirmations, this wonderful book is a perfect introduction to knitting for a complete beginner.
