I believe this is what you are looking for:

"Learn to Knit" - vintage knitting instructions booklet from Susan Bates.
I remember that green cover!

The most recent edition; found on Amazon, has a newer one.

My mom taught me to crochet when I was 5. I taught myself to knit 42 years ago. I wanted to make the Shetland Isle Shawl for my nephew. I was too dumb to know only an advanced knitter should attempt it. It looked pretty good. Took me 5 months but I did it.

This was my first project of any consequence:

No one told me it was too difficult!
I went to the local Woolworth's (long gone) and bought materials.
It seemed to take forever to complete.

That's why I said I was "fairly expert", when I finished!

Mrs. Buchanan, a Grey Lady (volunteer nurse) taught me the to knit and purl when I was 10. She didn't teach me what to do about dropped stitches.
I discovered that my mother knitted, when she picked them up; and went flying down the row. I found that she wasn't the only knitter in the family.
I could share something with my older relativesI

Gradually, I became more expert; and fascinated with knitting lace.
I didn't knit for some years.
I've returned to it, now.

It's a wonderful stress reliever; and I can create something beautiful in the process!
