The Knitting Experience Book 2: The Purl Stitch, Becoming Intuitive

by Sally Melville

Paperback, 2003






Picking up where The Knitting Experience: Book 1: The Knit Stitch left off, this primer on the purl stitch uses clear, step-by-step photographs to guide beginner knitters through unique knitting projects. A natural progression of skills is taught, and each skill is punctuated by a knitting project, enabling new knitters to create an entire wardrobe featuring jackets, sweaters, hats, socks, and mitts. The book acts as a knitting coach, offering advice, anticipating difficulties, and providing rescue techniques. Patterns are presented in an accessible format with ample text, photographs, and line drawings. While this book is written for the new knitter, more advanced knitters will enjoy the knitting projects as well.

Same gripe as volume 1; same positive comments -- except that these patterns also use the purl stitch. I'm not sure a complete beginner would be perfectly happy just skipping to this book. There is some repetition between the two, but The Purl Stitch only repeats by way of review.

If you're a

beginner, I suggest purchasing both volumes 1 & 2 at the same time, and using them together.

3 stars, 1 for the author being so wonderful. I'm past this book in terms of my knitting development, but wanted to read it for thoroughness. If you're using her program to build up your skills, you're in good hands, but it's not quite the most exciting read for someone who already knows what
