內容簡介 Knitting Basics for BeginnersStep By Step Visual Guide - Learn to Knit Like a Pro in Less than a Week If you are looking at this book than I would assume you are a smart and creative person and you want to learn how to knit. That s wonderful I am happy to introduce you to knitting. Before we get started, I just want to remind you that you will be learning a new mechanical skill. This means your fingers will feel awkward holding the needles and manipulating the yarn for the first little while. It doesn t take long before your body begins to memorize the movements and your knitting will pick up speed and begin to look smoother and more professional.However, for the first day or two try to be patient, concentrate on the required movement of the needles and yarn and find the most comfortable way for YOU to knit.You are going to make errors. This a good thing because we learn more from our mistakes than we do from performing a task perfectly. In Chapter 7 I will discuss the most common problems beginners run into and various ways to solve them. You always have options in knitting.We will begin with simple squares or swatches of knitting because they knit up quickly and you can use them to compare examples of different types of stitches, increases, and decreases to see what they might look like in a completed garment. You can make notes about what you have learned and attach them to the swatches with a safety-pin, so you have a resource you can go back to anytime you need to refresh your memory.In this visual guide I teach you: What Supplies And Equipment You Will NeedThe Basics Of Casting OnHow To Hold The NeedlesTwo Popular Methods Of Managing The YarnGarter Stitch KnittingHow To Cast OffHow To Start Your First Project Of Knitting A ScarfThe Purl StitchThe Increasing And DecreasingHow To Get GaugeHow To Deal With 9 Common Errors And MistakesHow To Put Final Touches To Your New CreationHow To Do Mattress Stitch To Join StitchAnd so much more...Enjoy your new found Hobby
