Knitting Tips

BEGINNERS: The Bergere pattern books contain illustrated instructions for basic knitting and crochet, with hints and tips. In our pattern details on this AvidKnit site we have graded the patterns as Easy, Intermediate or Expert - so starting with one described as Easy would be a good idea. We recommend that, on this site, you start by going to Patterns for Beginners (click here), select a pattern that might appeal to you, clicking to get the full details, and if still interested, then to order the pattern book, and the recommended yarn pack for the size that you want, and the needles. Then you will have everything that you need to get started and without having to make too many decisions.
