The easiest how-to-knit kit just got even better

We love knitting. No other craft has such dual appeal: It's simultaneously trendy and traditional, fresh and old-fashioned, ultra-cool and completely classic. And, thanks to this book, totally clear and klutz-proof.

Since its publication in 2004, the classic Klutz book Knitting has taken hundreds of thousands of novice crafters from step zero (how to hold the needles and yarn) to look-what- I-made finished projects. Unlike other how-to-knit books, the directions here are clearly explained in plain language with no confusing abbreviations, diagrams, or codes. The projects - a long skinny scarf, a cozy hat, a sunglasses case, a cell phone holder, and more - are all teen-tested and a far cry from your grandmother's afghan.

This season, we've given Knitting a makeover, with a fresh, new cover and our favorite wrap-able, stackable, boxy format. The 96-page instruction book comes complete with variegated, worsted weight yarn, a pair of bamboo knitting needles, a crochet hook, two cute buttons, and a yarn needle. Altogether, it's everything anybody needs to start knitting now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to learn to knit I bought this book years ago (in one of it's earlier versions) and it was excellent. It's thanks to this book that I know how to knit today. The instructions are easy to follow and clear. I've recommended it to several people and plan on buying this new edition for a young friend for Christmas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible! How utterly dreadful. I own other Klutz products- which are fabulous- but unfortunately, this product was different. The instructions are painfully vague. I have to cross check most of the instructions, and get clearer details from other sources. I would definitely not recommend this book. The knitting needles and yarn serve their purpose, though, and work just fine.
