Knitting Learn It. Love It. is designed to serve as a long-term reference guide to all the essential knitting techniques. Each chapter teaches basic skills in detail, with step-by-step guides and carefully annotated photographs and diagrams to ensure the reader knows exactly what to do and how to do it.


There are simple 'quick start' projects to build confidence and help the reader progress; galleries of inspirational projects made using the techniques learned in that chapter; guest designers and bloggers share some of their favourite patterns. There are also really useful listicles sprinkled throughout the pages for readers who want to quickly understand the essentials, plus knitting clinics for insider tips and advice on spotting and avoiding common mistakes.


This comprehensive knitting reference guide is a valuable resource for beginners and more experienced knitters alike.
