    From Elizabeth Zimmermann, who “revolutionized the art of knitting” (New York Times), the classic knitting bible that removes the frustration and puts the fun back into knitting with easy-to-follow instructions and timeless designs.

    Do you love to knit—and hate to purl? Have you ever started a sweater without enough yarn from the same dye lot to finish it? When you cast on, do you end up with a tail of yarn that’s maddeningly too long or too short? Elizabeth Zimmermann comes to the rescue with clever solutions to frustrating problems and step-by-step instructions for brilliant, timeless designs.

    In Knitting Without Tears, you’ll find elegant designs for:

    • Color-pattern Norwegian ski sweaters
    • Seamless patterned-yoke sweaters
    • Hooded garter-stitch jackets for babies
    • Watch caps, socks, slippers, mittens, and more!

    This classic and influential book is poised to inspire a whole new generation of knitters who have yet to discover the joys and comforts of knitting. As the lady herself once put it, “properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
