MDK Skill Set Beginning Knitting

$25.00

There’s never been a how-to-knit book like this. It’s little. Smart. Encouraging. In 9 short lessons, with dozens of clear illustrations, it teaches everything a new knitter needs to know and nothing they don’t.

The 9 Lessons
Everything a new knitter needs to know, short and sweet. These lessons draw on decades of knitting experience.

Lesson 1: Supplies, Casting On, Knit Stitch, Binding Off
Lesson 2: Purl Stitch, Combining Knits and Purls
Lesson 3: Basic Shaping: Increases and Decreases
Lesson 4: Knitting in the Round
Lesson 5: Basic Lace and Cables
Lesson 6: Basic Colorwork: Stripes, Stranding Intarsia
Lesson 7: Finishing: Weaving in Ends, Seaming, Blocking
Lesson 8: Patterns, Yarn, and Gear
Lesson 9: Fixing Mistakes

They emphasize practise in each lesson, so there are swatches to make for each technique. There’s just one pattern, for a simple hat, that lets a new knitter try out the techniques.
