A complete guide to the stitches, techniques, and finishing touches that every knitter needs to know. Whether you are just learning to knit, or you are seldom separated from your needles and yarn, there will always be times when you need instruction—or just a reminder—on a particular technique or stitch, and even the most experienced knitter may not know all the tips and wrinkles included here. Knitting Know-How has step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear color artworks, showing you how to do everything from basic knit and purl stitches, to increasing and decreasing, lace patterns, intarsia, and Fair Isle. If you want to know how to get started, everything from casting on and working out your gauge to blocking your finished make is covered. For more experienced knitters, useful tips on making buttonholes, picking up stitches, and stranding yarns in color work will all help you achieve a perfect finish to your makes

*Looms, ceramics, umbrella swifts, and other heavy/bulky/fragile items are NOT eligible for free shipping.

Ashford Wheels & Looms: All products are drop shipped directly to your shipping address. These products are not available for in-store pickup. Shipping for these products is charged as follows: $10.00 Flat Rate Shipping. $12.00 Dropship Fee, $5.00 surcharge if under order $100.00.

Covid 19 Update: We are shipping your orders as quickly as we can, but please understand that we are working with a limited staff at a slower pace than usual. The same is true for USPS. Right now, shipping can take up to 10 days longer than they're estimating. This is because of a drastic reduction in air travel, as well as a significant decrease in the USPS workforce, all while the demand for items being shipped has increased significantly.
