Like a fun, gossipy friend who knows how to knit, this guide gently initiates novice knitters by getting them comfortable with the rhythm of casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, and binding off--before graduating to simple projects that introduce rib, seed, stockinette, and garter stitches on straight, circular, and double-pointed needles. Advancing from the ribbed scarf and roll-brim hat to "Ballet School Dropout Leg Warmers" and "Belle of the Ball Cardigan," lessons also cover shopping, chart-reading, weaving in ends, starting a new ball of yarn, blocking, and adding zippers and buttons. The appendices offer further enlightenment--with a glossary of knitting lingo, a plan for "The Knitter's Pantry," and a guide to undoing mistakes.

The most important parts of a beginning knitting book is the clarity of the text and pictures. While this book has an enjoyable writing style, and would probably be a fun read for an early knitter, using it as your learn-to-knit book is likely to be frustrating. I suggest Zimmerman or Righetti.
