This "Chicks with Sticks Guide to Knitting" presents a series of lessons that slowly but surely introduce new skills, techniques and concepts, along with helpful hints, then lets readers try out what they've learned with a project or two; including belts, bags, hats, scarves, wraps and sweaters. With more than 30 chic projects, plus simple step-by-step instructions for utter beginners, these books are the perfect way to learn a new, rewarding hobby. New knitters can finish up their first projects in a weekend. Slightly more advanced projects are also included so that beginners can move to the next level. The humourous tone throughout gives it a relaxed feel.
