A newcomer to knitting will welcome a true beginner's first book--especially if it can turn a them into a practiced knitter in the course of its pages. The overview of needles and fibers quickly leads to an introduction to needles, yarns, and stitches, from learning to follow patterns to putting on finishing touches. Of course, you learn quickest when you practice your techniques with rewarding projects, so you get to take on attractive projects immediately. Start with a pot holder, cushion cover, and tea cozy. Move up to a baby slipover, crib blanket, and girl's bolero. Soon you'll be finishing gift-quality wool and cotton cardigans, cotton and raglan sweaters, boot socks, wool gloves--even a handsome unisex V-neck sweater!
