Here, let me show you.
Book 190, Learn to Knit
The front covers brims with the confidence that armed with a few skeins of yarn and some needles, YOU CAN DO IT !
And then, they give you an intro and a reference index covering what learning materials are covered. And, amongst the lessons (plenty of diagrams), are a nice assortment of very basic beginner patterns. Although these patterns go way back to 1968, they are still quite applicable to todays wear.
Garter Stitch Headband
Striped Knitted Scarf
Childrens or Womens Slippers
Turtle Neck Dickey
Garter Stitch Drawstring Bag
Striped or One-Color Pea Cap
Easy to Knit Kilt and Beret. There's also a great, very long, stocking cap, that somehow, I missed getting a scan.
They put out a nice little booklet, simple instructions and plenty of diagrams that, when you've taken your time to work through, you'll be able to complete a few projects, learn to read knitting patterns and, gain a little confidence to move forward.
I've listed this booklet in my shop in PDF format at a very reasonable, learning, price, should you be interested.
Thanks for dropping by,
