Book Review - Complete Knitting Skills: Online Movie Book Guides

About the Book
Absolute beginners can learn to knit, and experienced knitters can expand their repertories when they take advantage of this absolutely unique approach to knitting. Complete Knitting Skills is an illustrated manual, augmented with an innovative series of accompanying online tutorials. Knitters can learn techniques from the book’s photo-illustrated step-by-step instructions—or they can access the closely related online tutorials, using their smartphone with QR codes printed in the book. They can also access tutorials on their laptop via the internet. Most often, knitters will want to use both book and tutorial in tandem, taking advantage of the best that both have to offer. The tutorials present the advantage of start-and-stop instruction, so that knitters can practice new techniques at their own pace. This truly exceptional combination book-and-video knitting course presents—
  • A wide range of knitting techniques, including lace, cables, textured patterns, beaded knitting, and more
  • A trouble-shooting SOS section that shows how to spot mistakes and avoid them
  • Advanced techniques for experienced knitters to give their knitted items that professional touch

Here is a combination package that gives beginners the confidence to tackle more advanced projects, while also delighting experienced knitters with a wealth of new techniques. The book features approximately 800 color illustrations.

My Take on the Book
For anyone who loves to knit, or anyone who wishes to learn how, this is a very complete book that will help you to learn the number of knitting techniques and provide something not only for beginners but also for experienced knitters too. The book was well-written and easy to follow and the images alone within the book made the book that much more valuable in my eyes. One of the other great things about this book is the online components to the book itself. The book that only provide step-by-step instructions that you can read within the book, but also allows for the reader to be able to engage with a specific topic on my for more in-depth study. This provides the reader with none of the great content in their hands but also great resources at their fingertips that are available anywhere that they may be going in the future. I believe that this combination makes this book invaluable.
