Teaching and Learning

Knitting and Crochet in Motion
Sit "shoulder-to-shoulder" and stitch-along with an expert knitter and crocheter as they put these crafts in motion for you. See the stitches and the fashions close-up as they are created. These incredible DVDs feature A-Z indices, auto-pause, fashion shows, sketch galleries, and expert instruction.
Teach Yourself Visually
Do you find you learn faster by seeing and doing than by wading through tedious instructions? Teach Yourself VISUALLY Knitting and Teach Yourself VISUALLY Crocheting show the basics, photo by photo and stitch by stitch. The books begin with the basic tools and stitches and progress to the more complex. Even the novice will be creating masterpieces in no time! Concise two-page lessons show all the steps to a skill, and they are ideal for quick review.

New Books

And there are tried-and-true designs like hoodies, scarves, fingerless gloves and hats. You will love the variety of soft, colorful yarns too, including the ecologically minded market bag to knit with plastic grocery bags.
