Knitty Gritty PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Knitty Gritty free pdf There's a new generation of knitters out there, turning the traditional image of granny-knitters on its head. Everyone has heard the mantra 'Knitting is the new yoga' but not everyone is lucky enough to have someone to show them the ropes and get them started on their very first row. Unless they have a friend or relative to teach them how to start, often would-be knitters turn to the so-called 'beginners patterns' but these can be confusing, difficult to follow, and more often than not written in 'knit' rather than English. This book will be a tried and tested guide for people at the very beginning of their knitting lives, looking for guidance and patterns for projects that they can use to make that first all-important step to 'Beyond the Scarf'. Contents include: Knitting Basics: Getting Started- Knitter's First Project: The Scarf- Workshops: Decreasing- Creating a Rib- Changing Colour- Increasing- Finishing- Knitting a Flower- Cable: Making a Cable- Making a Cable Bag- Eyelets and so on...
