Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Offering charts and plans for making infant- through adult-sized projects, this unique book provides knitters with a complete resource of more than 350 patterns for caps, tams, scarves, vests, sweaters, mittens, gloves, and socks that are written for multiple gauges to accommodate all weights of yarn from bulky to fingering. Also included are the basics of pattern design and alteration to allow for the addition of different types of texture and color patterns or the modification of existing patterns to accommodate more gauges. Patterns are also accompanied by an assortment of ideas for edgings and finishes, further expanding design options.

This is my absolute favorite knitting book. Well-written patterns for multiple sizes and gauges, solid construction, clear and concise instructions - perfect for any time you need a "plain old sock pattern," "plain old hat pattern," etc.

If my house was on fire and I could only save one knitting book, this would be the one I'd choose!

This is my goto book when I know what I want to make, but can't find the right pattern. The only section I haven't used is the section on socks, and that's only because I have so many books about socks!

Not only does this book include guidelines for basic garments, but it also has information about technique (the diagram for M1 increases has been indispensable), edgings, and advice for fit.

I do find the sweater section a bit lacking, as it gives guidelines for only one type of sweater (which I've used several times for children's sweaters). If you are most interested in sweaters, I would recommend the Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns, also by Ann Budd. I have both. Since I personally most often make sweaters for myself from written patterns, I use the general pattern book much more often.
