    How to Knit is the ultimate knitting guide for the absolute beginner. For those with little or no knitting experience, this simple-to-learn, project-based book will start with the basics and take you through the initial stages of this fun and creative craft.

Demonstrate your new skills to friends and family with designs that include a hobo bag, beanie hat or clutch bag. Beginners will learn all the essentials, from how to hold needles, cast on and off, make a tension swatch and form the basic knit and purl stitches, to how to knit stripes, cable, rib and lace, plus shape their knitting and add buttonholes. Clear step-by-step illustrations and beautifully shot photographs of the finished projects are included throughout, making it both practical and inspirational--the ideal book for want-to-be knitters!
