The Learn-To-Knit Companion - from Churchmouse
Teach a friend, brush up on your skills, or learn on your own. This complete, easy-to-follow instructional tool shows you how.
The Learn-To-Knit Companion is a 16-page booklet that uses more than 120 instructional photos that will turn you into an accomplished knitter. Just follow the steps! With The Companion by your side, you can even begin one of the First Projects patterns in the Churchmouse Classroom collection.
PHOTO TUTORIALS IN THIS GUIDE:
- Choosing and preparing your yarn
- Two ways to cast on
- The knit stitch and purl stitch for both 'pickers' and 'throwers'
- Changing from knit to purl within the same row
- Getting a dropped stitch back on the needle

To get started, grab The Companion and a pair of needles above, then choose a light-colored mostly-solid shade (to make it easier to see your stitches) of Malabrigo Worsted, a super-soft merino wool yarn that's easy to knit. You're on your way!
