Beyond Basic Knitting: Techniques and Projects
Beyond Basic Knitting assumes that the reader has a moderate amount of experience with the craft. Therefore, skills such as executing the basic knit and purl stitches, checking gauge, joining new yarn, weaving in new stitches, and blocking are mentioned, but not explained. For a thorough explanation of these skills, please see Basic Knitting: All the Tools and Skills You Need to Get Started (Stackpole, 2004).
What you will ï¬nd in this book is a brief review of some intermediate skills as well as an introduction to more advanced techniques that you can add to your repertoire. The true focus of the book is the projects section that will highlight these advanced techniques and show how they are applied in a particular project. The Skill Workshops throughout the book each focus on an individual technique and provide in-depth explanations on how to apply them. The Project in Progress sections take an in-depth look at a particularly complex aspect of a project and guide you through step by step.
The projects in the book are not arranged by level of difficulty, and are independent of one another. You can select whatever type of project suits your fancy without worrying about missing any of the skills in previous projects.
So browse through and see which of the ten projects you want to try out ï¬rst. Then head out to your local yarn shop for supplies, pick up your needles, and get started!
