Knitting is a great craft to keep your mind and hands busy. It’s so portable that it’s the perfect craft to bring with you on the go. We have an expansive selection of knitting books so you can find something no matter your skill level.
We have beginner books for crafters who haven’t yet knit their first stitch. Knitting is a wonderfully versatile craft, you can make detailed highly stylized sweaters or make simpler projects so even young kids can pick up some needles! Books are also a great way introduce new techniques like fair isle or stranded colorwork. Being intimidated by a new type of project such as your first pair of socks or first handknit sweater is common but getting over your fear is easy when you have a book by your side.
Our selection of stitch dictionaries and reference books will help budding and experienced pattern designers. You can really get into the minutia of knitting with books dedicated to a specific technique such as binding off. We carefully select each knitting book with an eye towards usability, novelty, uniqueness, popularity, instruction clarity, and overall value. Our selection can inspire you if you’re looking for your next project or give you a plan for all the Christmas Gifts you want to knit (handknit ornaments are a great option!).
Knitting with your own handspun is such a fun way to control every aspect of your project, but if you aren’t sure how to get the type of yarn you want we even have a book for that! The Woolery’s knitting selection includes titles from Dover Publications, Interweave Press, Search Press, Storey Publishing, Trafalgar Square and many more. We also include popular authors such as Clara Parks, Andrea Rangel, Arne & Carlos, Elizabeth Zimmermann, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee and Amy Herzog
