    One thought on “Teach Yourself Visually Knitting”

    1. I previously had Knitting for Dummies and I FELT like a dummy reading that book. IT took me 6 weeks to even figureo ut basics with that book. Not so with this one, thankfully!!!! I've been enjoying the step by steps, easy lingo, colorful pictures, and how user friendly it is. It's set up really well and is efficient. Thanks to it, as a beginning knitter, I've tackled some projects I never would have dreamed of this early an can always fall back on this book for guidance.

    2. At the recommendation of a super-knitter, I purchased this book when I wanted to learn how to knit and I suppose it never occurred to me to add it to until yesterday when I thought I should write a "yay!" review for this instructional guide book. I actually taught myself how to knit with this book. Well, I re-learned how to knit, but the only stitch I learned in college was the knit stitch, which produced two sad, simple scarves just long enough for my toddler godson. Anyone who's looking to le [...]

    3. The book I have actually combines knitting and crocheting, and someday I'll try to tackle the crocheting. But mostly I use this to remind myself how to do the knitting basics -- from casting on and binding off to switching yarns and adding tassels. The color photos with closeups of hands-on-needles offer helpful and easy to follow step-by-step instruction. The patterns aren't anything special, but I might try a few for practice.

    4. This is the first knitting book I bought, when I came back to knitting a few years back. I've known how to knit since I was very small, but I needed refreshment on finishing techniques, buttonholes, cast-on styles, etc. This book is great for the beginner-to-intermediate knitter. It's laid out for you in plain and simple terms, and the photos are among the clearest I've seen in a knitting book (you would think that would be an obvious thing to do, but many publishers skimp on the photos).

    5. As a very new knitter I really found this book helpful. I am a visual learner and I can attest to this book being useful for my learning style. A friend taught me the initial cast on and garter stitch, then I sought books to help me when I did not have a knitter nearby. After checking out a few library books, I found I valued this one was my favorite. I liked the project instructions and the way it covered so many of the basics.

    6. I am learning knitting. It's something I've always wanted to learn. I'm left handed so its hard to find someone to teach me. My local library has a knitting group that meets once a month. I went and they taught me how to begin. This book as well as some Youtube videos were recommended. This book was very helpful and informative. The only problem I had with it is some of the pictures don't really match the steps. Other than that it was great.

    7. Trying to learn more options for holding the needles and yarn to save my hands some aches and also some options for casting on. My cast on method lacks since it makes that first row super-tight and then leaves the edge uneven. Compared to the cast off edge, it's a mess. So, this is one of those research reads to see if I can find a better way.

    8. I really liked this book. It starts from the basics and moves onto complicated patterns. It has easy instructions and the accompanying diagrams are surely helpful. I liked the variety of patterns given in the book. I would give it full five stars if it included some more patterns as used in projects.

    9. This is really a great book for those wanting to learn how to knit. Everything is laid out in wonderful color photographs step-by-step. This really is an instruction manual and not really full of patterns. I do think if you are wanting to learn how to knit and know very little, this is definitely the book for you.

    10. It's pretty friggin hard to learn how to knit from a book, but I've looked at 3 or 4 and this is definately the best one to use. I learned the basic stitches, but I just don't have the patience to figure out the complicated stuff, unless someone actually showed me.

    11. This is a great book, not only for those wanting to teach themselves how to knit, but for those who are experienced knitters as well. Very imformative, easy to learn from, and wonderful patterns to get you on your way to knitting.

    12. I don't think anyone who has no prior knowledge of knitting can learn from this book. There are many steps that have no photos and the photos are not that large. Save your money and watch some knitting videos on YouTube. Also the projects were beyond dull.

    13. This is a fairly useful book, but in the age of youtube, I've had more success watching videos with teaching myself to knit. There are just a few things that could be worded a little bit better, or a few more pictures that would help more. However, there is a lot of great information in here.

    14. I really enjoyed this bookI love to knit but am not very good at it (yet). This book shows everything you need to know step by step with pictures. It even has a few simple patterns included in the back. It's great!

    15. I am just learning how to knit and this book has lots of pictures and shows step by step how to learn different stitches. So far it has been very helpful and it is now on my Christmas list.

    16. I really like this book. It is a great reference book whenever I can't remember or don't know how to do a technique.

    17. This is one of the most helpful books I have ever found on how to learn new patterns. If you want to try out new things or just need a reference book, this is a must have for the knitter.

    18. This is my absolute favorite teach-yourself-to-knit book. It contains pictures of actual hands holding actual needles and using actual yarn. It's simply the best!

    19. Great book if you are intestested in teaching yourself to knit. Great tips, tricks, and some awesome patterns to help you get started.

    20. Unsurprisingly this book has great photo references of different knitting techniques and a good glossary. But the projects aren't anything I want to make.

    21. buku ini cocok banget buat pemula. karena penjelasannya detail dan ada gambarnya. porsi gambarnya bahkan lebih banyak daripada teksnya (sesuai judulnya kaliii) hehehe

    22. Easy to read and easy to follow. This book is helpful for beginner like me. I especially like the pattern sample collections.

    23. This book was the best book I found when teaching myself to knit. The pictures are clear, the instructions basic. Terrific!

    24. A lot of the pictures are so blurry, I can't tell what the needles are doing or where the yarn is supposed to go, and that's when the fingers aren't in the way.
