Book Description

2 Sep 2013 Creative Makers

Knitting is cool again! Knitting groups are springing up everywhere and those of us who perhaps learnt to knit as children and then forgot about it are now rediscovering the joys of sitting down with friends, some beautiful yarn and a pair of nice chunky needles. For those new to knitting, Ros provides all the information you need to get started, with an overview of yarns, terminology and step-by-step instructions on how to knit. All the projects in the book are made with just two stitches (either knit or purl) and most use simple squares, oblongs or tubes for super-easy knitting.

Gorgeous photography by top lifestyle photographer Yuki Sugiura captures the sheer pleasure of knitting what you wear.

4.0 out of 5 stars slippers 16 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I immediately thought that I'd like this book from the cover. I made 2 slippers as Xmas gifts and hope to do some more projects. It is simply explained and worth getting for real beginners as well as more experienced knitters.
