DVD 1 teaches the basics: casting on and off, knit, purl, garter and stocking stitches, increasing and decreasing. DVD 2 teaches intermediate techniques: the ribbing stitch, using stitch holders and markers, knitting gauge calculations, sizing for different people. In DVD 3 you'll learn: patterns, cable stitches, changing yarn colors, double sided cables, blocking and tufts. Each DVD is divided into chapters for each technique, allowing you to quickly find instruction on a specific topic. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with this product, return it within 30 days for a full refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars American Knitter learn how to knit 3 dvd set March 17, 2005
Verified Purchase
I just received this dvd set on tuesday and by thursday I have learned to cast on the proper way, knit, purl, increase, decrease, cast off, hold my yarn the proper way etc. etc. Tracy is the greatest!! I feel like I went from an insecure beginner to a confident intermediate knitter in just two days. I haven't even begun dvd lesson number 3, but I am secure in the fact that I will master it and become an intermediate or better knitter because of this awesome teacher. She is friendly, patient, and very pleasant and caring as she guides you through each step of the way. I hope she will put out another series where she teaches you to understand knitting patterns. Thanks Tracy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Knitting DVD Set January 11, 2005
Verified Purchase
This fabulous DVD series is a MUST for those young and younger who, like me, can't knit and feel like they cannot learn. The instructions are so easy to follow that even I could do it with ease! The end result is well worth the investment. I highly recommend this DVD set! It would also make a great gift for some lucky recipient. Have fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Knitting! December 13, 2004
I recently purchased, American Knitter's, "Learn How to Knit" and I am THRILLED! These DVD's actually teach three knitting projects from start to finish! These are the lessons I have been waiting for. They are well filmed, the sound is good, and the lessons are great. Professional knitting instructor, Tracie Wunderlich, is personable and communicates the knitting techniques with real enthusiasm! Knitting is a craft to be enjoyed! I certainly enjoyed watching all 3 DVD's. If you love to knit and to learn new stuff like I do, you'll love American Knitter's, "Learn How to Knit".

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Beginner Knitting DVD May 16, 2005
I bought this DVD for my niece who is 9 yrs old. She started on Saturday and by the next day she already knew what a slip knot was, casting on and the knit stitch! Great teaching methods very easy and is set at the correct pace for a beginner.

We can't wait to start our first project together!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Instructor, Poor Producers March 11, 2006
I had to "ding" this rating by 2 points because, although Tracie is fairly good at explaining how to knit, she makes some strange and contradictory choices that actually stand in the way of her instructions. The first thing that will stand out to anyone watching this DVD is that she is wearing extremely long acrylic TALONS that are additionally painted in tiger stripes. These are incredibly distracting for a film that's supposed to teach knitting. Second, she tells the audience it's hard to see your stitches if you use a yarn with variegated colors, or is dark, or is a textured yarn. She then proceeds to teach the basics in an extremely dark shade of forest green, then does one project (a dishcloth) with variegated yarn and the next project (mittens) with charcoal -- really, almost black -- textured yarn. I also would have liked for her to have explained more about her background in knitting other than to say, "I've been knitting for 10 years and I'm a wonderful knitter." I think that all these things were really the fault of the producers, who should have advised Ms. Wunderlich to have a shorter, plainer manicure and to choose lighter, solid-color yarns.

Finally, I wish that Ms. Wunderlich would have explained to new knitters the difference between the Continental and English method, and the benefits of each. Most instructors seem to just pick one method and never talk about the other, an unfortunate omission since different people usually find one method much easier than the other.

The amazing thing is that DESPITE all these problems, Ms. Wunderlich managed to teach me in a day what I was never able to learn despite many attempts as a teenager. I just wish that Hill Bros. would re-shoot this DVD and correct the problems mentioned here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning Knitter March 4, 2005
Applause, applause for this OUTSTANDING video. The instructor gives clear, explicit directions and the camera shots are excellent. The instructor speaks clearly and is pleasant to look at. Her directions are easy to follow and reinforces each lesson with a review. I highly recommend this video. You will be most pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Knit Before January 11, 2005
This dvd was easy to understand. I was knitting before I knew it. The instructions were clear and precise and the camera focused on the hands knitting showing me exactly what I needed to see in order to duplicate the steps. When I was through I had a completed item to use and I could hardly wait to go to the next dvd and get started. I actually can knit. Thanxamillion

4.0 out of 5 stars Knit with Needles January 19, 2007
For those of you for which the book instruction is not enough. This is a GREAT instructional dvd. This is a wonderful way to learn to knit using needles. You can stop, start, and slow down the dvd. The pace was slow enough for you to follow along, but not too slow. The speech was clear and concise. Just perfect for the beginner. You learn at YOUR own pace. Repeat something as many times as you need to get it right. No pressure! It was great! When I completed my first project, I was so proud! This is a great dvd and a wonderfully pleasant way to learn. I would also like to highly recommend the round loom knitting dvd by the same company. [...] has a sample clip of a lesson.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for learning to knit mittens
I agree with the other reviewers. It is very hard to see the stitches using dark yarn -- much easier to see stitches and how the stitches are made using light/white colored yarn. Read more
