Run out of yarn before you finished knitting that fabulous sweater? Buttonholes won't hold your fancy buttons? Can't tell your knit stitch from your purl stitch? Don't just fix it, Knit Fix it with the new and easy-to-download Knit Fix eBook!

Knit Fix eBook puts together all the guidance novice knitters need to become independent and all the advice experienced knitters need to take their projects to the next level. Written in a conversational, approachable style, Knit Fix is the essential repair manual for knitters. It's all here - from the basics of what a stitch looks like to techniques for solving the toughest knitting problems.

Author Lisa Kartus cheerfully teaches you to see and mend the errors of your knitting ways, with advice on what to do in case of a brain freeze, how to rescue a sweater gone horribly wrong, and when it's okay to let mistakes stand.

Knit Fix will teach you to assess your knitting philosophy, size buttonholes correctly, cast on and bind off, decipher charts, choose fibers and calculate yardage, tackle holes, join yarns, work with multicolor knitting, alter a finished piece, and customize a pattern to suit you perfectly. Personal stories about the author's own knitting challenges - like deforesting a sweater in a complicated pattern and what she did with the sweater that fit like a gorilla suit - will keep you laughing about your troubles.

You'll perfect your knitting techniques, learn from your mistakes, and finesse your style. No matter what your knitting dilemma, the Knit Fix eBook will make fixing all your problems a snap!

Excellent for beginners
I found the review of basic knit/purl helpful, since I was less than a year into learning to knit when I got my copy. The common problems and fixes are great, as is the philosophy of knitting section. Review by Dennis (Posted on 4/7/2015)
Great book for a new knitter
I purchased this book several years ago when I began to really get into knitting. It was extremely useful as I went through the beginning stages. Now that I'm a more advanced knitter I seldom refer to this book but I highly recommend it for the beginner to use in conjunction with help videos on the internet. Review by Denise (Posted on 4/1/2014)
Not very useful
I was not impressed with this purchase. Most of the information contained in this e-book was stuff I already knew, or that is readily available online. It might be helpful for less-experienced knitters. Review by Darlene (Posted on 12/30/2013)
Great concise resource
Bought the ebook and using it on my ipad. A very useful summary. In response to the negative review there are only 6 pages that discuss basic knitting stitches, and I think it makes sense to include very basic stitch anatomy in a book that deals with fixing mistakes - if you understand exactly why and how a stitch should look the way it does it is then easier to correct it, and hopefully not make the mistakes as often In the future. But, you can't please everyone! ;) I think it's great value especially if you can pick it up in a sale! Happy knitting. Review by Sarah (Posted on 12/27/2013)
Very good, I hope
Since it's Christmas time, I haven't had much time to see what's in this book. I am looking forward to it, though. I would like to know how to correct my mistakes without having to rip two (usually very long) rows! Review by Suzanne (Posted on 12/25/2013)
Some good information
Although most of the beginning is showing simple knitting techniques, it does progress into some of the difficulties I have encountered. Most of it is common sense that I figured out without help, but the last portion regarding fixing was very helpful. It would be a better e-book without all the simple instructions and just center mainly on the difficult fixes. Review by Peg (Posted on 12/24/2013)
Very disappointed!
Bought this in digital download form and there are pages and pages on how to knit at the beginning. It is costing a fortune in ink to prink and it should be re titled "How to knit"

I thought it was supposed to be for people who could already knit , we do not need to know how to work a knit and a purl stitch! It is supposed to be about problem solving!
I have stopped the printer and will finish checking it out on my computer. I hope it

One of my best knitting purchases
This book has good, simple instructions that are particularly helpful as a reference for more experienced knitters, as well as novice knitters (who will gain confidence when they find out most mistakes can be corrected without unravelling their project). Review by Jan (Posted on 6/10/2013)
