Beyond Knit & Purl
Beyond Knits & Purls is designed to help you bridge the gap between knowing how to knit and purl and knowing how to choose and successfully work a pattern. It will teach you how to assess the difficulty level of a pattern, and explore the types of projects that are good for new knitters. This book is designed to be both an instructional manual and a reference. It will also include how to choose which size to make, what this gauge business is all about and how to actually read it. The second section of the book tackles key knitting skills and techniques that allow you to broaden your skills and move beyond scarves: shaping, working in the round, socks, cables, lace and colorwork. Each section will start with a "how to" guide to get you started and a mini-projects to allow you to practice your new skills. The twenty four projects, including the mini patterns for teach will help you in building your skills further.
