I would have never guessed how effortless it would be to pick up a new skill such as knitting, and from a book too! With the how-to book Kitting by Anne Akers Johnson, this skill which is typically imagined as overly complicated and only for grandmas can be quickly picked up and mastered with a little patients, needles and yarn.

Part of the reason why this book is so simple to understand is the organization aspect of it. At the beginning of the book there is a section entitled Basics. Within thi

This is the book that taught me how to knit. I have knitted all six projects in this book, the hats being the best out of all of them.... I recommend this book to anyone young or old that is interested in learning how to knit. :-)
This book managed what my mom couldn't; it actually taught me how to knit. I can't believe how easy it was for me to follow the instructions, well, some of them seemed a bit confusing at first, but after a while I got the hang of it.

I learned how to knit from this exceptional book. I did have a problem with the photos of teenaged girls who, by my standards and God's Word, weren't dressed modestly (my reason for giving the book only four stars). However, this book gives the easiest, most thorough step-by-step instructions that I'm sure absolutely anyone (with patience, mind you =) could learn this fun, relaxing, creative, and most enjoyable craft. Knitting is so rewarding. You never have to be bored when you have a project t ...more
Don't Judge! I've always wanted to learn how to knit, and this book was the perfect starting point. Klutz really knows how to breakdown crafting and present it in a way readers can easily follow. Also, I loved the book's use of colored illustrations, which made visualizing where to pick up stitches much easier.
While I had to rely on You Tube knitting videos to get the knit stitch down and had to meet up with a friend to learn how to purl, this book got me casting on without any trouble. Although I found the illustrations somewhat lacking, since this book is available on Amazon and comes with yarn, needles and a crochet hook, I think this book is a great find for those of us aspiring knitters who are (well, I was until I started knitting) intimidated by knitting stores and the people who frequent them.

I am a knitter and have been for many years so when we received one of these damaged in a shipment last year I jumped at the chance to knit up a sample from the book. I tried to follow the directions from beginning to end as though I didn't already know how to cast on etc. It was easy to follow and the little purse I made came out rather nicely. I did change the pattern just a little bit (as I always do) because I prefer an i-cord strap to a stockinette strap.
Finally, a book that actually shows you how to freaking knit! I love the majority of these patterns and can't wait to start knitting them!

This book is wonderful and it includes a kit containing all the items a new knitter needs.
Extremely helpful- the best book I could find for self-taught knitters!
Not the best instructions, but pretty good patterns.
This is the book that taught me to knit.
