Core techniques are described in detail and shown in step-by-step, close-up photography, along with easy-to-follow directions. All aspects of using the board are covered--from the basics to more advanced techniques--so whether you're just learning to cast on, working basic stitches, or looking for solid advice on how to shape and join sleeves or add finishing details such as pom-poms or a drawstring, you'll find everything you need to get started and more.
Complete directions for thirty-four projects ranging in difficulty are also included, starting with fast and fun weekend projects, such as a colorful tote or adorable baby booties, and advancing to more complicated projects such as a hooded cable-knit sweater for a child or a striped button-up jacket for yourself.
