A brilliant book which really does cover all the basics. It makes learning knitting a joy as the projects are so simple and rewarding to make. The skills are well explained in clear steps with good illustrations. The projects are useful and pretty and worth making. Other beginner books i've used have been frustrating and time consuming and its easy to loose interest with other books as they are a bit too complex for a true beginner - there is none of this with this book. Now i have the basics I'm moving on to simple patterns such as Noro, but i still use this as a reference when I forget/have a blank moment.
This really is the best beginner book I have seen - and being a hoarder, I have a few of them!!!
