About the author

Susan Akass is the author of many popular reading scheme books, children’s picture books and adult short stories. She is also a full-time primary school teacher. She has two children, now grown up, and lives with her husband. The author is based in Bath.

Divided into four chapters, My First Knitting Book includes a difficulty level of 1, 2, or 3 for every project, and comes with easy-to-read instructions and adorable, step-by-step artworks that will guide you along the way. In Stylish Knits, you’ll find cute little bow hair clips and decorative buttons, a panda hat, fingerless gloves, a keyring charm, and lots more. Cozy Knits has pretty mouse mittens, an earflap hat, and a cowl. Then you can have a go at some of the Home Knits, and try making a heart cushion or a caterpillar doorstop for your room. Lastly, Fun Knits has cute ideas for toys and other pretty things you’ll love to make, such as an alien, a rag doll, and a doctor’s stethoscope. Finally, the basic techniques section covers every knitting technique you’ll need to know, as well as yarns, needles, and stitches.
