Complete Knitting Skills by Debbie Tomkies

 

We are very excited to announce the launch of Debbie's new book Complete Knitting Skills, part of the new Online Movie Book Guide series.

Debbie's latest project has been an exciting and innovative collaboration with Quarto publishing, combining a comprehensive knitting handbook with a series of linked online video tutorials. As you would expect, there are oodles of detailed step-by-step photo-illustrated techniques, top tips and expert advice.

What makes the Complete Knitting Skills really unique are the QR codes on the pages. These codes allow you to link directly to online video tutorials for the key techniques. You simply scan the QR code with your smartphone and this will take you directly to the relevant video technique. No smartphone? Web details are also provided so you can view online via your laptop, pc or tablet. It's like having Debbie sitting beside you as you learn!

All the basics are covered for absolute beginners but even experienced knitters will find some useful knowledge nuggets among the key skills pages. Once you've nailed the basics you'll be ready to take on some of the more advanced techniques such as lace, cables, beading, knitting in the round and colourwork.

Because none of us is perfect, Debbie has included a comprehensive section on what she refers to as fudges, faults and tweaks - aka how to spot errors and fix them as painlessly as possible. With over 800 full colour photos (Debbie asked for a specific mention for her nails here!) it's easy to see what's going on and to replicate the steps and stages.
