More and more people are discovering the pleasures of knitting. Yet many of today's new fans have not had the same opportunity as previous generations to learn the necessary techniques. There could be no better guide than Debbie Bliss, highly successful knitwear designer and author of numerous bestselling books.
In Step-by-step Knitting Workbook Debbie provides a guide not only to basic techniques - casting on and successful finishing, for example - but also pinpoints the key features of her successful designs taking knitters through them step-by-step. A basic guide to how to knit, accompanied by step-by-step illustrations and photographs, is followed by chapters covering the techniques Debbie views as essential to creating stylish knitwear. These range from the use of simple garment shapes to colour work such as Fair Isle and intarsia, as well as finishing touches of embroidery and beading. Step-by-step colour illustrations demonstrate each technique and over 20 wonderful projects allow the knitter to practise and perfect their skill. As a guide to how to knit, and an insight into the secrets of a highly successful designer, this book is invaluable.
