In the Big Book of Knitting, beginners will find everything they need to make their first knitting project, and experienced knitters will love the sensuous photos of the creative process and the finished projects. From needles to fabrics, all the essential techniques appear, along with a variety of stitches and weaves - not only the basics, but intricate double-face, jacquard, and intarsia. Add buttons and buttonholes, zippers, borders, and pockets. Weave or embroider one of many popular designs onto the fabric. Finish off with charming touches like pompons, piping, fringes, and tassels. The projects, all accompanied by charts and patterns, are breathtaking: colorful socks, gloves, and mittens; sweaters; vests; polos; and pullovers. 239 pages.
