Textured knitting requires only the simplest of skills and only a little more attention than plain knitting. The purpose of this book is to share a collection of the countless fabrics that can be created with only knit and purl, and to give you the inspiration and confidence to enjoy using them. If you can cast on and bind off, knit and purl, you can make the majority of the projects. Add a basic increase and decrease, and you can make them all! Designer Margret Willson makes it fun and easy to discover textured knitting with 72 stitch patterns complete with photos, row-by-row instructions, and charts. Organized from easy to intermediate, 29 projects include dishcloths, pillows, a sampler throw, and a variety of afghans and family fashions.
