Learning to knit can be frustrating when it takes too much time and effort to begin your first project. The Beginner's Knitting Manual introduces an array of stylish projects — cardigans, scarves, socks, and more — that offer a quick start. Even if you've never tried to knit, you'll find that it offers plenty of chances to make something interesting, satisfying, practical, and beautiful. Step-by-step instructions, accompanied by full-color photos and stitch patterns, are suitable for intermediate-level knitters as well as beginners. As you advance through the book, you'll notice that the patterns gradually become more complex. But they'll remain easily achievable, as your skills and confidence gradually develop. Even the more experienced will find this volume a great go-to reference for essential techniques, including cables, knitting in the round, colorwork, and much more.
