Dropped and twisted stitches, too-small button holes, and mis-crossed cables are only a few of the knitting dilemmas tackled in this humorous and useful guide.

Synopsis:

Dropped and twisted stitches, too-small button holes, and mis-crossed cables are only a few of the knitting dilemmas tackled in this humorous and useful guide. Beginners and seasoned knitters alike are promised that learning from mistakes improves technique and inspires personal style—and that sometimes the best solution is just to let a mistake stand. To head off problems before they start, the sturdy, spiral-bound book explains the correct way to cast on and bind off, decipher charts, choose fibers, calculate yardage, join yarns, work with multicolor designs, and—for more experienced knitters—how to alter a finished piece or customize a pattern.

About the Author

Lisa Kartus was a college teacher and a financial writer for magazines including Forbes, Money, and Time before she began writing about knitting. She lives in Wheaton, Illinois.
