Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit, but thought it was too complicated? What does “knit one, purl two” even mean?
In this visual guide, your knitting prayers are answered! I have devised a way for you to easily and quickly teach yourself the beautiful art of knitting with simple, easy-to-read instructions. I have even included over 300 FULL color (in the eBook version) pictures, charts and illustrations to guide you every step of the way.
You can finally check “learn how to knit” off of your bucket list!
I can remember sitting with my dear Grandma Mary on Sunday afternoons at her house surrounded by endless balls of yarn. My favorite item of clothing was a sweater she knitted for me one year. I wore it until it was full of holes!
My Grandmother was very patient with an overly eager 10 year old me. She took each step of showing me how to knit slowly. She carefully described each knit, purl, and yarn over in a way where I could keep up.
In this Beginners Guide To Knitting by Pictures, my tone with you, the reader, is just as gentle, simple, and familiar. The narrative will feel like your grandmother is sitting beside you and teaching you how to knit every step of the way.
You keep the pace of customizable teaching experience. Feel free to go as slow or as fast as you like!
