Synopsis

Run out of yarn before you finished knitting that fabulous sweater? Buttonholes won't hold your fancy buttons? Can't tell your knit stitch from your purl stitch? Don't just fix it, Knit Fix it!



Knit Fix puts together all the guidance novice knitters need to become independent and all the advice experienced knitters need to take their projects to the next level. Written in a conversational, approachable style, Knit Fix is the essential repair manual for knitters. It's all here-from the basics of what a stitch looks like to techniques for solving the toughest knitting problems.



Author Lisa Kartus cheerfully teaches you to see and mend the errors of your knitting ways, with advice on what to do in case of a brain freeze, how to rescue a sweater gone horribly wrong, and when it's okay to let mistakes stand.



Knit Fix will teach you to assess your knitting philosophy, size buttonholes correctly, cast on and bind off, decipher charts, choose fibers and calculate yardage, tackle holes, join yarns, work with multicolor knitting, alter a finished piece, and customize a pattern to suit you perfectly. Personal stories about the author's own knitting challenges-like deforesting a sweater in a complicated pattern and what she did with the sweater that fit like a gorilla suit-will keep you laughing about your troubles.



You'll perfect your knitting techniques, learn from your mistakes, and finesse your style. No matter what your knitting dilemma, Knit Fix will make fixing all your problems a snap!
