Skill Set: Beginning Knitting by MDK

$25.00
5

Modern Daily Knitting (MDK) has been helping knitters since 2003. They now have distilled those years of teaching into the only book you need to start your knitting journey.

There’s never been a how-to-knit book like this. It’s little. Smart. Encouraging. In 9 short lessons, with dozens of clear illustrations, they teach everything a new knitter needs to know, and nothing they don’t.

This is it. Skill Set gives you the keys to the kingdom.

The 9 Lessons

Everything a new knitter needs to know, short and sweet. These lessons draw on decades of knitting experience by Kay and Ann.

Lesson 1   Supplies, Casting On, Knit Stitch, Binding Off

Lesson 2   Purl Stitch, Combining Knits and Purls

Lesson 3   Basic Shaping: Increases and Decreases

Lesson 4   Knitting in the Round

Lesson 5   Basic Lace and Cables

Lesson 6   Basic Colorwork: Stripes, Stranding Intarsia

Lesson 7   Finishing: Weaving in Ends, Seaming, Blocking

Lesson 8   Patterns, Yarn, and Gear

Lesson 9   Fixing Mistakes

They emphasize practice in each lesson, so there are swatches to make for each technique. There’s just one pattern, for a simple hat, that lets a new knitter try out the techniques.
