At Modern Daily Knitting, Ann and Kay have been helping knitters since 2003. Now, they have distilled those years of teaching into the only book you need to start your knitting journey.

There’s never been a how-to-knit book like this. It’s little. Smart. Encouraging. In 9 short lessons, with dozens of clear illustrations, we teach everything a new knitter needs to know, and nothing they don’t.

This is it. Skill Set gives you the keys to the kingdom.
