This is a terrific "Knitting for Dummies" sort of primer. I'm finding that knitting sites and books, even for 'beginners', assume too much pre-knowledge. This book doesn't! It's written for those who've never held a needle. It's a little goofy "hip" because it's written toward teens, but I appreciate the casual tone and step-by-step explanation for me as someone who keeps reading about a garter stitch but hadn't yet known what it meant.

For a book intended to help teens learn how to knit, the instructions in this were totally unclear. Would not recommend as a guide for either beginners or experts. Most patterns were also dumb looking, except for the super cute pattern for text-messaging mittens with fliptop thumbs.
