Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Providing an overview of gauges, joins, seams, borders, and buttonholes, this portable reference is the definitive tool for hand-knitters and an indispensable addition to any knitters bag of tricks.

Synopsis:

This favorite knitting guide features new color drawings that illustrate the close-up detail of stitches, gauges, joins, seams, borders, and buttonholes—and new photographs that show off the finished pieces. New tricks and techniques are also introduced, including alternative ways to cast on, bind off, and increase stitches, and up-to-the-minute stylish accents are provided in expanded sections on color knitting techniques and the use of tassels, fringe, and beads. Tips for the best possible results are included throughout, and the handy format of the book (it fits easily into a knitting bag) has been enhanced with a hard cover and a concealed spiral spine that allows the open book to lie flat.
