 Expert tips and tried-and-tested shortcuts for beautifully finished hand-knits.

An otherwise finely crafted piece of hand-knitting can often be spoiled by the finishing details. Now you can learn the shortcuts—and even more important, where not to cut corners. Starting with reading patterns and instructions, this invaluable guide then explains the different ways of casting on and off and the importance of shaping and sizing. It shows how to sew a variety of seams, provides methods for each type of stitch, and explains how to create perfect buttonholes, button bands, and necklines. Finally, a section on decorative detail shows how to add beads and other embellishments, while the trouble-shooting pages tackle those annoying problems that occur when things have gone wrong. An invaluable companion for beginners and more experienced knitters.
