This is a nice, simple, illustrated beginner's knitting book. I like that it explains things about yarn weight and types of needles and how to read a pattern and how to read the yarn label and what all that information means. The author explains the differences in the various yarn fibers and how to block and felt projects. I think that beginning knitters will find this to be a useful, helpful book. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
