Book Description

A ball of yarn can become anything you want it to be with Knit Step by Step. Taking you through simple skills, including how to knit, purl, and cast on and off, this simple handbook will soon help you decode knitting patterns and build intricate designs with eye-catching rib and cable stitches, structural effects, and multi-coloured Fair Isle and intarsia patterns.

Alongside more than 200 clearly photographed stitch patterns and techniques, including using circular needles and creating structural effects, Knit Step by Step features eight fun knitting projects to give you the chance to put your newfound skills into practice. Create a simple scarf, eye-catching soft furnishings, and other items to keep you and your loved ones warm and cosy.

Easy-to-use and fully illustrated, this book is ideal for beginners picking up their first pair of knitting needles, as well as more experienced knitters looking to build on their skills and refresh their technique.
