The Cool Girl's Guide to Knitting
The instructions for the projects in The Cool Girl’s Guide to Knitting are clearly written for the most part and with the help of the extensive abbreviation list included the steps to complete the projects are easy to follow.

In Knitgrrl2, the author Shannon Okey writes in a very positive manner, encouraging a new generation of knitters. Even though this book is a sequel she has included the necessary information for beginner knitters.

The Jumbo Book of Needlecrafts
As the knitting craze continues to spread and grow through all the age groups The Jumbo Book of Needlecrafts is a perfect resource for a child's exploration of needlework.

Celtic Knits: Over 25 Designs for Babies, Children and Adults
There are some truly beautiful and inspiring projects to make for the whole family. The projects in this book include scarves, sweaters, hats, socks and jackets for adults and children. The projects range in style between casual and elegant items of clothing such as the Fair Isle Cardigan and the Cashmere Crossover Top.

Crocheting in Plain English
The author explains how to crochet so that anyone can learn how to do it. After a brief history of crochet and how she got started crocheting the author dives right in with the breakdown of the crocheting process. I really like that she has a practical attitude about crocheting telling the reader to choose a project wisely, one that will suit your time schedule, budget and needs.

Stitch ‘n Bitch Nation
What I really like about Stitch ‘n Bitch Nation is that every part of it is useful to knitters of every experience level. It is very comprehensive and jam-packed with everything you want and need to know about the knitting process. A color photo accompanies every project, so you have a good visual of what the final product should look like.

Weekend Knitting: 50 Unique Projects and Ideas
After a brief introduction about how the author feels about knitting and the projects in this book, the content is divided into three categories/chapters; Home and Hearth, Body and Soul and The Charm of Children.

Knit One Felt Too
Here is a great book that every knitter should consider adding to their collection. The patterns are quite easy to do and the instructions contain all the details you need to make knitted felt.

The Knitting Directory
I really like The Knitting Directory because it has something for beginners, intermediate and advanced knitters. You can learn the basics and advance your knowledge of knitting to more stitches, larger and more complicated projects and even making your own designs.

The Teen Knitting Club
Teen Knitting Club will benefit beginners and knitters of all ages and stages because it is an all-encompassing book of knitting instruction and fun and interesting projects.

Baby Knits for Beginners
As the weather gets cooler the urge to knit is getting stronger and this is the perfect book for projects to make to keep your little ones warm. Baby Knits for Beginners is a very welcome, useful informative book for the beginner knitter, especially if you want to make something cute for a special little child.

Cool Crochet 30 Hot, Fun Designs to Crochet and Wear
This is not your traditional book of crochet patterns. The projects in Cool Crochet include: sweaters, ponchos, tank tops, skirt, halter, scarves, skully (cap), dress, bags, tops, stole, jacket, bikini, hat and a necklace. The crocheted items are unique, fun and fashionable. The title of the book says it all!
