This is a great beginners book to knitting! Even though I have been knitting for over a year now I found this book very helpful. I am a self-taught knitter and usually read books and watch YouTube videos to learn the skills needed for each pattern I have tried. This book goes into detail about how to cast on, the basic stitches (Purl/Knit), increasing/decreasing stitches, correcting errors (dropped stitches or too many stitches) and so much more. I highly recommend this book for anyone learning to knit. The author explains in simple instructions each task along with pictures.
