9780764553950: Knitting For Dummies

Knitting is a relatively simple process requiring a minimal set of tools – two needles and a ball of yarn. Its basic structure of interlocking loops couldn't be less complicated. Yet the possibilities for design and pattern innovation seem endless. Now is a great time to learn to knit. Never before have you had so many lovely and imaginative yarns from which to choose and so many stylish and sophisticated patterns to work with.

Sure, grandmothers knit, but so do movie stars, football players, doctors, and lawyers. They know what our grandmothers do: Knitting does more than just provide you with warm and cozy things to wear. Knitting also

  • Stirs your creativity
  • Gives you an ongoing sense of purpose
  • Teaches patience
  • Soothes the soul from the stresses of everyday life

  • Mastering the four elemental moves of knitting
  • Deciphering knitting patterns

  • Getting started with simple projects
