About this title:
Synopsis:
With this excellent how-to book, anyone can learn to knit well, undertake new knitting projects, and even create new designs. A key to better knitting rather than a set of instructions for making specific garments or articles, this comprehensive guide is a permanent reference on various knitting techniques. All basic procedures are thoroughly explained—from selecting and using knitting equipment, casting on and binding off, to taking measurements and adjusting sizes, assembling garments, inserting zippers, and making linings for jackets, skirts, and other apparel.
Over 300 drawings illustrate such fundamental steps as knitting and purling; increasing and decreasing stitches; knitting left-handed; making cable and other crossover stitches; turning and shaping; working Argyle, Scandinavian, and other multicolored patterns; knitting with ribbons and making crocheted finishes; picking up stitches, and much more.
Individual chapters describe yarn bobbins and characteristics of a wide variety of yarns (wool, mohair, cashmere, alpaca, and angora, as well as nylon, rayon, orlon, and other man-made fibers), while 200 photographs illustrate finished designs, among them lace patterns for formal occasions, trimmings, sportswear, baby or adult garments, scarves, and afghans. For needlcraft enthusiasts who have added foreign-language publications or very old knitting books to their libraries, this volume will prove especially useful. A valuable chapter on Abbreviations and Terms explains word usage in old instruction books and even translates commonly used terms in foreign publications.
