Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
About.com Readers' Choice for Favorite Knitting Book of 2012 Winner

"Leave it to la Epstein to run rings around the rest of us. In Knitting in Circles, the companion to Knitting Block by Block, Epstein not only knits them (100 different disks), she also transforms them into a riot of finished objects, including the gorgeous Eternity Dress fashioned from thirty-three circles and a flounce. From the showpiece Kaleidoscope afghan and the completely wearable Rotunda cape to the unconventional but interesting Circulate cape, Epstein takes knitters on a fearless playdate with pi." --Vogue Knitting

    Amazing Book

    Nicky has done it again. The patterns are edgy and beautiful at the same time. I knit the 8 circle scarf and just adore it - knit with Fiesta it is warm and fuzzy and very fashionable. There are no words to describe the dress. She includes a large number of patterns for circles and invites the reader/knitter to create our own garments.
    This book is a winner.
