Tangled up by your latest knitting project? If you ever wished your local wool shop had a 24-hour hotline, then help is here in the form of "The Knitting Answer Book"! Written in a handy Q&A format, this invaluable reference provides help and advice whenever and wherever a problem arises.
The best way to get answers to your questions about knitting is to ask an experienced knitter. In the past someone from an older generation was usually on hand to help the novice knitter, but today lucky is the knitter who has access to such a mentor at the moment she (or he) is needed! This book fills the place of that experienced knitter so you can get answers to your questions quickly and get back to more important things – like your knitting!
Written with all levels of knitters in mind, the questions here range from those frequently asked by beginners to those only experienced knitters would think to ask. The information is arranged into 13 chapters covering Casting On, The Basics of Knitting, Binding Off, Tools and Equipment, Yarn, Reading Patterns, Pattern Stitches, Circular Knitting, Colour, Shaping, Fitting, Finishing, and Embellishments.
From needle sizes and yarn weights to dropped stitches, tight ribbing, chart reading and curling edges, the answer is only ever a few pages away.
