Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This is a big, beautiful, and colorful tribute to the art and pleasure of knitting. Beginners will be well on their way to finishing off their first projects with the easy step-by-step illustrated instructions, and more experienced knitters will find inspiration in a multitude of advanced stitch patterns, innovative designs, and charming finishing touches.
Library Journal
Originally published in Germany in 1996, this is a lavishly illustrated knitting reference particularly strong in its coverage of both basic techniques like increasing and decreasing and more advanced techniques like knitting cables without a cable needle, working with charts, and placing sleeve increases in openwork patterns. Garments illustrating techniques covered in the book and a section of stitch patterns round out the content of this excellent knitting reference that should find a place on the shelves of all public library knitting collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Linda Cyr
As the owner of several excellent knitting technique books, I urge you to check out this one. If you are a beginning knitter or an outpost knitter, then this book may be just what you need.

    All the basics you somehow missed, explained

    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.

    Good starter book.

    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.
