Debbie's books on knitting and crocheting are the best for people who like to learn from a book.
I bought happy Hooker two years ago and today I am a crochet designer with a long waiting list.
Goes to show...
I don't particularly like the projects in the book; They are a bit drab. But the text teaching you how to knit is perfect.
Just choose a beginner's project you like from a website and make it while reading the book.
I'm currently making the original Dr. Who scarf from season 12 and it's looking perfect!
Back cover copy
It s the essential guide for chicks with sticks from the tools of the trade to the knitty-gritty of techniques and patterns, all with easy-to-follow step-by-step illustrated techniques: Stockinette stitch, rib stitch, seed stitch. Increasing and decreasing. All the bells and whistles: fringes, tassels, cables, intarsia, crab stitch, and Fair Isle. Plus the stitch doctor s own special bag of tricks and how to hook up with other knitters. After the how-to comes the why-to: forty hip, stylish patterns, as good for beginners as they are for purly pros. "
