Kitchener rib, duplicate stitch, what the heck do all those cleaning symbols MEAN? - it's all here. This is a great book of basics. It has basic patterns for socks, mittens, gloves and sweaters. Great for those times when the pattern directions aren't *quite* thorough enough.

Very informative and comprehensive. However I thought illustrations could be better. Sometimes they used photos instead of drawings or diagrams. I found drawings more helpful than photos. I also needed more than one try to get more complicated patterns to come out correctly, but with practice was able to make cable knits.
