If you would like to start knitting but don’t have anyone to show you how, or if you know the basics of knitting but would like to improve and learn the more complex skills of shaping, lace patterns and colorwork, then 'Knitting Basics' is for you. Starting at the very beginning with casting on, knit stitch and binding off, the 20 workshops take you step by step through different stitches and techniques, with color artworks to show you how everything is done. At the end of every workshop there is a project to make which is designed to put what you have learned so far into practice—the best way of making sure you don’t forget what you’ve learned. As you progress through the workshops, you will also learn how to read patterns, how to join pieces, and how to knit in the round. The projects include a table runner made up of squares knitted in knit stitch, a child’s jumper with intarsia design, a messenger bag with cable patterns, and a textured throw with bobbles and fringing. There is an introductory section on tools and materials, and there’s also a handy stitch reference guide in case you just want to refresh your memory of a particular stitch.

The birth of a baby is a celebration, and Special Knits is based on our need to create lovingly-made items for new little people, in soft yarns that are gentle against delicate skin. Each stitch is invested with affection and care by the knitter. Some of the designs in this book are simple to make - their special quality lies in the softness of the fabric, usually a cashmere mix. There are other projects where the uniqueness of the design comes from a scattering of beads, a velvet bow, or an organza ribbon that frames the gentle curve of a baby’s cheek. Most of the designs require little knowledge of complicated techniques; a simple garter-stitch blanket is perfect for a beginner and is given a touch of luxury with an edging of satin. Easy knits are embellished with a ribbon or a scattering of beads, while for those knitters who prefer more of a challenge, there is a sampler blanket or a cross-stitch embroidered gingham cardigan. What better gift for a new-born than to create a special hand-knitted and unique garment. In an age of the throwaway, these are garments that will become the modern classic, knits to cherish and hand down through generations.
