When I was young and Richard Nixon was in the White House...I knew how to knit and purl and that was about it. I had never done a project. I had made a rather dinky scarf, but that was about the extent of it. Somebody else had to cast on and bind off for me.
Almost 30 years ago, I saw Barbara Walker's book and immediately purchased it. Then I got the yarn. I worked through all the squares in a few months--I could have gone quicker but was also going to graduate school, had an infant. Not only was the afghan beautiful, but Walker's notes were so helpful and abundant that I had no trouble whatsoever. Walker really helps you to learn to identify the sundry scenarios that yarn on the needle can create and also to demystify it.
I emerged from the experience and went on to knit fisherman sweaters, lacy christening gowns, and was able to take on any pattern I encountered.
Walker's book is somewhat like going to university and then to graduate school in knitting: I really can't think of any technique that she did not explain.
It's a great first project since it will teach you everything you need to know to do almost any knitting project. I felt as if I had been awarded a Ph.D. in knitting by the time I completed the afghan. It's enormously gratifying to move from little knowledge to creating cables and lace in a matter of weeks.
Since then, I've made several more Learn to Knit afghans in many different colours. I have used Walker's other knitting pattern books to substitute squares when I've wanted more of a challenge.
Other great aspects of this project are its portability; the immediate satisfaction of completing a square and looking at the results, and its beauty. You can use as many colors as you like, or you can limit yourself to two colors.

This book is excellent for people wanting to learn lots of different stitches as well as basic knitting. The diagrams are very clear and the "how tos" well written. I borrowed the old edition of this from the library and was unable to buy it. I photocopied the old edition. The library eventually lost their copy and I have been using my photocopy to learn new stitches whenever I need to. I was unaware that a new edition had been published. So here I am years later finally getting one for myself. :) Hurrah! A great reference for any knitter.

I can't remember HOW many times I've been asked to recommend a book to improve their knitting. And often I'm asked for a fun afghan to make. This book has it all. You take each project as a small square and when you are finished, you have not only made a very interesting looking afghan, you've advanced your knitting skills. One of my top recommendations for beginning knitters who want to get good at knitting. This is a very wonderful book and I am so glad it was reprinted (it was out of print for a while.)

This book takes you from easy patterns to very difficult patterns. The fact that there are many squares keeps one interested. The project is down right fun, and once i finished most of the squares (i'm still working on it) i discovered as i approached other projects that i had gone from a beginner to an intermediate knitter thanks to this sweet little book.
