    There’s never been a how-to-knit book like this. It’s little. Smart. Encouraging. In 9 short lessons, with dozens of clear illustrations, we teach everything a new knitter needs to know, and nothing they don’t.

    This is it. Skill Set gives you the keys to the kingdom.

    The 9 Lessons

    Everything a new knitter needs to know, short and sweet. These lessons draw on decades of knitting experience by Kay and Ann.

    Lesson 1   Supplies, Casting On, Knit Stitch, Binding Off

    Lesson 2   Purl Stitch, Combining Knits and Purls

    Lesson 3   Basic Shaping: Increases and Decreases

    Lesson 4   Knitting in the Round

    Lesson 5   Basic Lace and Cables

    Lesson 6   Basic Colorwork: Stripes, Stranding Intarsia

    Lesson 7   Finishing: Weaving in Ends, Seaming, Blocking

    Lesson 8   Patterns, Yarn, and Gear

    Lesson 9   Fixing Mistakes

    We emphasize practice in each lesson, so there are swatches to make for each technique. There’s just one pattern, for a simple hat, that lets a new knitter try out the techniques.
