The Ultimate Knitting Bible: A Complete Reference with Step-by-Step Techniques

Author: Sharon Brant

Now available in paperback, this best-selling title is THE essential guide to knitting. Whether you want to knit socks, use sequins and embroidery to embellish knitting, adapt a pattern to fit you beautifully or produce the perfect pocket, you can find out how to do it here. A comprehensive chapter on finishing your projects shows you how to get that really professional look and if you do make a mistake, just flip to the `Troubleshooting' chapter to see how to fix it.

Each chapter of this essential guide is devoted to one key area of knitting and provides clear and concise in-depth instructions along with step-by-step instructions for basic principles and more advanced techniques. Learn the basic knit and purl stitches, along with cast ons and cast offs, and in no time you will also be increasing and decreasing with ease. Once you're comfortable with the basic stitches, explore structure and shaping, texture, colourwork, embellishments, finishing and learn how to design and adapt patterns.

This comprehensive guide offers a useful section on crochet for knitting, a glossary of terms, clear instructions and hundreds of illustrations and diagrams showing each stage of the process. It'll be the one resource that you will turn to time and time again. Over 20,000 copies sold worldwide.
