The folks at Modern Daily Knitting have distilled 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, this book teaches everything a new knitter needs to know, and nothing they don’t.

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

Everything a new knitter needs to know, short and sweet. 

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

Practice is emphasized 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.
