The Step-By-Step Guide to Knitting Confidence

How can you create knitted pieces in rounds, squares, and tubes without mis-shaping, dropping stitches or destroying the original design? No worries! As author Jennifer E. Seiffert explains in her book Fearless Knitting Workbook, there are 4 ways to effectively shape your knitting without breaking a sweat.

1) Changing the number of stitches
The most common, stress-free way to create shapes is to add or remove stitches at either end of a row or within a row.

2) Changing the Gauge
Need to change the width without changing the number of stitches? Don't fret, just change the gauge by changing your stitch pattern or changing the size of your needles.

Knitting "Short-rows"
Ready to change the length of part of a piece? Simply create a short-row by knitting across only some of the stitches on the needle.

4) Adding Onto the Side of a Piece of Knitting
Concerned about making a piece wider? Master this technique by knitting onto your piece in a different direction with a "pick up and knit" stitch.

You can gain strength and confidence in your shaping with these 4 steps through classically designed swatch exercises, easy-to-understand language and step-by-step directions

Conquer your knitting fears

Don't let other knitting hang-ups like finishing steps and yarnovers get in the way of a beautiful finished project. With the guidance of Fearless Knitting Workbook, you can courageously approach any knitting pattern and deepen your understanding of how yarn becomes fabric.

Formatted for knitters of all skill levels, Fearless Knitting Workbookis a spiral-bound, hardback that lets you rest the book flat on the table so your eyes and hands can focus on your exercises. Plus, inside you'll find bite size directions such as:

  • Basic row-by-row instructions in standard knitting terminology, with all of the abbreviations, jargon, and funny symbols that can be so confusing to the beginner
  • Translation of unfamiliar abbreviations or symbols in understandable layman's terms
  • A special Why? section explaining the reason why something is to be done as instructed
  • Pointers and tips throughout the text to make knitting easier and less overwhelming
  • Reminders to read your knitting explains the results of the instructions just performed

Whether you're feeling rusty on your garter stitch, you've never thought your cables twisted correctly, or you're not sure how to whipstitch a seam, this resource will free you of your knitting anxieties.
