This book provides an introduction to knitting, along with patterns and descriptions for various projects. Like a fun, gossipy friend who knows how to knit, this guide gently initiates novice knitters by getting them comfortable with the rhythm of casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, and binding off-before graduating to simple projects where they will find great success. I highly recommend it for girls and even for young adults who want to learn how to knit. * crafters-corner.com * No. 116, June 2007
