Item description for Knit.101: The Indispensable Self-Help Guide to Knitting and Crochet (Vogue Knitting) by Editors of Knit.1 Magazine...

It's cool, it's chic, it's got right-from-the-beginning instructions, and features both knitting and crochet in equal measure: Knit.101 is like no other guide on the market. Geared to 18--35 year-olds, this fun manual, with its sassy tone and witty writing, will grab this fast-growing group of new stitchers. Even those who have never before touched needles and yarn will easily follow the detailed directions, which explain everything from winding up the skein of wool and making a slipknot to casting on, purling, and binding off. Reading charts and schematics, doing basic stitches, getting the right yarn tension, understanding gauge, sizing to fit, fixing the inevitable mistakes---all the fundamentals are covered in clear language and in a logical progression. But you'll also find unique features on recycling yarn, lotions to soothe cracked and dry hands, knitting happenings and cyber-groups to join, and even songs to keep you in "stitches" as you work.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Knit.101: The Indispensable Self-Help Guide to Knitting and Crochet (Vogue Knitting)?

Handy  Oct 10, 2007
I bought this book as a reference as I learned to knit. The book is helpful for learning the basic knitting techniques and a few more advanced ones. I also plan to use the book to learn crochet.

As for the patterns, I know in a few short years they will be extremely dated. They are faddish and sometimes overly simple. There are a few items that will stand the test of time, but the best use for the patterns is for testing the new techniques you've just learned.
Knitting for Beginners or Young People  Mar 4, 2007
Targeting 18-35 year-olds, Vogue® Knitting launched knit.1 in 2006 to appeal to the edgy, hip young things that had begun to take up knitting and crocheting. They partnered with Lion Brand Yarn to create designs which could be made inexpensively with widely available yarn.

Following up on the success of this new magazine, knit.1 has now published knit.101: the indispensable self-help guide to knitting and crochet. Collecting together techniques and patterns, knit.101 covers everything from casting on, to construction, and everything in between. Rather than having the patterns at the end, knit.101 intersperses technique with patterns, leading beginning knitters through a series of projects which will help them learn technique while, as editor Adina Klein states, making "...a one-of-a-kind creation...with your two cute little hands!"

Two-thirds of the book covers knitting, one-third is crochet. There are patterns here for bags, iPod holders, legwarmers and string bikinis. If you are a devotee of the magazine, then you probably won't need this book. Many of the projects featured have already been published in the magazine. If you're looking for a book to teach you or someone else how to knit or crochet and you fit the demographic of knit.1, then this book will suit you perfectly.

Armchair Interviews says: Book geared especially to the young who knit and crochet.
