    Great little book

    I love this little reference book. I have been knitting for years and never had a reference book, this one fits in a knitting bag and is very easy to follow the directions. Would recommend for all levels of knitting, a must have

    Knit Bag Buddy

    This was purchased as gifts for knitting friends. I saw others using the book and thought it would be a good purchase. After reviewing the book I think it is a must for the knitter.

    A Must Have

    If you're serious about knitting, you need to have this book. I carried it around in my knitting bag for years, using it as a reference whenever I would come across something I didn't know or remember how to do in knitting patterns. I especially used the instructions for the Kitchener stitch. 42 years of knitting and I still can't do it from memory.

    I love the format of this book. It's done in heavy weight cardboard so it can stand up to being carted around in a cloth bag. It has abbreviation definitions, basic knitting instructions, yarn information, gauge information, how to's, even a needle gauge and a ruler for measuring. This is a great book!

    The only reason I don't carry it around now is because I gave it to my daughter last year, who finally learned how to knit. (Yay!) I need to get another one. I'm hoping it will come out in Nook format soon? Please?

    Must Have Book

    One of the first books I recommend to a new knitter because you will never stop using it. Wish there was a Nook version.

    Easy to follow

    This book is the best knitting reference I have found. It covers the mechanics of knitting (no patterns), with clear illustrations and easy-to-follow written directions. The index in the back helps me find a topic for quick reference. I love its handy size and sturdy cover that allows it to stand on its own, tent-style. A real advantage when I am trying to follow a stitch and need my hands for the needles and yarn! If you are looking for a comprehensive yet managable reference book, look no further.
