The most extensive step-by-step knitting bible ever published.

A new edition of DK's ultimate knitting bible, with hundreds of step-by-step techniques, more than 120 patterns for a variety of knitting stitches, and 20 knitting projects suitable for all abilities.

Each step-by-step technique is shown with clear, easy-to-follow photography and explained with helpful annotations and arrows, so you can progress from basic casting on to confidently tackling intricate Fair Isle and cable patterns.

The Knitting Book walks you through all the tools, equipment, and techniques you'll need, from yarns and needles to how to follow or alter a knitting pattern. A photographic stitch gallery showcases more than 120 different stitches so you can practise your techniques, trying your hand at everything from garter stitch to intarsia, or customize projects with your own stitch choices.

This updated edition features 10 brand-new specially commissioned project patterns, including an arm knitting pattern, as well as 10 projects from the original edition that have been reimagined with new yarns and fresh colours. The Knitting Book is a one-stop resource for every knitter.
