Circular Knitting Workshop Essential Techniques to Master Knitting in the Round by Margaret Radcliffe First starts out with what looks like colorful doll sweaters and vests as if I needed any enticing to continue on. Like the comparisons it shows from circular to straight knitting, the ribbings. Hands on diagrams make it easy to see so you can do what they are talking about in each chapter. Multiple means of casting on and working with magic loop method is described along with binding off methods. A chapter I was looking forward to was the converting flat knitting to circular. I just really like to knit with circulars, especially on a plane so I'm not apt to lose one of my 4 double pointed needles. Shows basic chart knitting if you need a refresher or are a newcomer to that method of following a pattern. Patterns for potholders, bags and hats are included. Love just the different patterns and am thinking of another baby afghan I have to make this week looking at the diamond pattern vs. the one I am currently using will be a nice selection. Always am telling my blind friend that you can knit with needles and make a circle but that you'd have to then sew up the seam-she can't do the circulars but this book gives me another idea on how to achieve it. Shawls and scarves, socks and mittens and gloves, vests and sweaters. Something for everybody in this book, beginning or experienced knitter. Other abbreviations, glossary and index are at the back of the book.

I have had other circular knitting books but this by far is the best one to have in your knitting library. It is loaded with such useful information.
