Now, complete beginners can learn everything they need to know to knit beautiful and cozy garments, blankets, and accessories. Begin by selecting needles and yarn and then start practicing the basic knitting and purling stitches and their variations, including the loop stitch, slip stitch, and crossed stitch. When you're ready, move on to tubular stitches, and learn to increase and decrease your rows of stitches and bind off to finish your work. Instructions are given for a wide range of garment pieces and styles, including various necklines, collars, sleeves, buttonholes, and pockets. Find out how to correct mistakes and mend holes. Add interest to your projects with decorations such as pearls, sequins, and jewels; jacquard and smock stitches, embroidery, braids, fringes and pompoms. Make baby booties, mittens, gloves, socks, sweaters and more.
