Beyond Knit and Purl (e-book)

Does your knitting measure up? Let Kate Atherley take you to the next level with Beyond Knit & Purl, new from Cooperative Press. As a technical editor -- and more importantly -- as a teacher, Kate knows where knitters hit roadblocks and how to overcome them, and she shares her many years of experience in this book.

Confused about increases or decreases? What's ease? If you've only knitted dishcloths, are you ready to move on to socks or should you try something else first? What does "decrease stitches evenly across" actually mean in practice? Do you need some Dirty Secrets or Knitterly Advice? (There are plenty of both scattered throughout the book's pages.) Or do you need some help choosing the right pattern for you? This and much, much more are in the book.

The amazing how-to photos by Caro Sheridan clearly demonstrate techniques so you can follow along as needed, and there are great patterns (24 in all) spread throughout to support the educational material ranging from ultra-simple dishcloths up to shawls, socks and other garments.
