I downloaded a pattern earlier today that will be new to me, as I am a fairly new knitter. Can you tell me what it means to slip a stitch off and where does that stitch go? Do I take it off with the right needle from the left, and place back on the right, or do I let it drop? I am looking at doing some shawls for the local hospital, and have stayed away from patterns requiring this stitch, but i want to know. Thank you, Tamie

I am also into knitting but just newbie in this interest, I really appreciate having this kind of guide, and it is just easy to follow with my Kindle reader. This knitting idea was once mentioned by blog commenter from == .uk/2013/10/patterns-going-mobile.html

The knitting for beginners 9 tutorials were a waste. I got photos of items, no printing, or bits of printing, but not consecutive. Wasted a bunch of my paper, and most is useless. Not happy!

Very good for beginners.

I am an avid knitter really but I've seen some abbreviations on some patterns here that I don't understand like K2tog. Pat 6 sts. I understand the K2tog. but what does Pat 6 sts. mean? I have also seen 'M' used quite a bit, anyone know what that stands for? Or know of somewhere that explains all the abbreviations?

This book is useful for my students. However, 2 photos are reversed on pages 13 and 15: garter swatch where stockinette swatch should be and vice versa. (I cannot find a way to contact you privately, so I'm posting comment hoping that publishers see it.)

I just shared this free knitting ebook with my Facebook friends... My tip is check it is also cool.
