In Getting Started Knitting, Jennifer shares all the tips, tricks, and techniques for knitting newbies. Like a close friend, knitting tutor, and personal shopper rolled into one, she shows you how to purchase the basic tools and materials and then methodically teaches you how to cast on and bind off, knit and purl, and increase and decrease. With sparkling wit (naturally!), she instructs you how to decipher charts and abbreviations, fix mistakes, and more. In addition, Getting Started Knitting features more than 20 easy-peasy projects to get you hooked.
