You have a very special booklet in your hands: KNITTING SCHOOL by Sys Fredens.
The booklet was originally published by Klematis in 2004 and has been discontinued after selling more than 35.000 copies.
In cooperation with knitting designer Sys Fredens, Hobbii now has a unique opportunity to publish this iconic booklet that will help any beginner enter the knitting universe safely and stylishly.
The booklet contains all the original patterns, now updated with yarns sold by Hobbii. The patterns in the booklet are timeless and still ideal for beginners who want to learn how to knit from scratch, or intermediates who want to try their hands at knitting a sweater. The booklet fits perfectly in your bag, but you also have the option of learning the techniques on Hobbii’s own YouTube channel.
Sys Fredens writes: It’s amazing that this book can still inspire knitters, whether they’re beginners or intermediates. The book opens with an introduction to knitting to ensure that any reader will get off to a good start. The first patterns are simple, while the last patterns increase in difficulty.
All designs are knit in neutral shades, but you can find all the yarns listed on Hobbii’s website in many wonderful colors to suit your specific tastes.

I bought this book mostly for terminology, because my fist language is Russian and I have difficulties with English terms, for this task the booklet works well. Clear, simple explanations plus I got it with huge 80% discount. Great deal. Thank you, hobbii.
Great book for beginners.
I did not find this book very helpful. The drawings of how to do the stitches were very unclear as were the written instructions. The patterns were vague and uninspired. This book definitely did not help me learn to knit
