Knitting Without Tears

Basic Techniques and Easy-to-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes

Elizabeth Zimmermann

Softbound, Large Format


This is simply the very best “how-to-knit” book ever written – it not only gives you clear, easy-to-master instruction on all the basic techniques of the craft, it sets you free to knit whatever wonderful hat, sweater, vest or anything else your imagination can envision. And, you will be able to use any yarn that strikes your fancy. Did I mention how easy this all is? You’ll see that I’m not making any of the up when you read Knitting Without Tears – the only knitting book I know of that is so entertaining to read that I used to cozy up with it at bedtime.

If you have never knit before, this is the best possible place to learn – you will enter the ranks of the “expert” by the end of the book – without strain, I might add. If you already know how to knit, but want to move beyond patterns and into freedom, there is no finer guide than Elizabeth Zimmermann. Whatever your level of knitting – you will love this book.

“. . . properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
