Format: Hardcover
this is the book that taught me to knit....for some reason, the author has a great ability to explain knitting to the beginner and the projects are interesting enough to encourage the beginner....while there are no instructions for increase or decrease, she puts you so much at ease that your appetite is whetted to go looking for more......she also has a crochet book that managed to stop the crochet mental block that plagued me for years.......both of jessie rubenstone's books opened the knitting and now crochet floodgates for me when no other book could

Format: Hardcover
This is the first book I used, which I borrowed from the public library. I had a friend teach me how to knit and purl, but I don't remember sequences very easily and found this book to be incredibly helpful that first few nights in reminding me how to knit, cast, purl on, etc. The sequence of photographs for the steps of knitting, etc. are logical and easy to follow.

There are also some really basic projects where you can knit a blanket, scarf, belt, hats and learn how to make pompoms and a strap for a bag. This is a great book if you are planning to teach someone else how to knit for a short time and just want to get a tiny book that's not too expensive that will demonstrate the basics of knitting, purling, casting on and binding off.

This is the book that I first learned how to knit from. Basically it's a bare bones book with very easy to follow instruction and step by step illustrations which teach you how to perform simple. The book even shows you how to build your first set of needles. Easy instructions for basic products are also included.
