Deservedly a classic. ( )

Easy-to-follow lessons and patterns. Sensible solutions to nagging problems. The only book any knitter will ever need

This knitting book was the first book of its kind that I actually read in the same way I would read a mystery or fiction book. The author, Maggie Righetti, talks about how she has grown into a proficient knitter. She demystifies knitting for the beginning knitter and finds understanding with the more experienced knitter. This book is not about the newer trends in arm and hand knitting but discusses the many stitches and techniques that knitters have been using for years. She uses easy to understand instructions and talks the reader through some of the common mistakes knitters run into without overwhelming with too much to say. She has an easy style that is helpful and surprisingly engaging. Who thought a book on knitting could be so entertaining? I highly recommend this book for beginning knitters who want an overview of the subject and/or experienced knitters who want to share the knowledge of a knitter who truly enjoys her craft and wants to share her expertise in a non-threatening way with others ( )

Great basic guide for all knitting. ( )

Practical, must have for all knitters. Especially good reference for beginning knitters -- I wish I had found this book much earlier in my knitting life. ( )
