Publisher Comments:

It would take dozens of knitting books to give you the information you'll find in just this one! With input from over 50 specialists, all with years of experience in the industry, no other book covers the field so comprehensively and with such authority. Every single technique was meticulously researched, written, and tested by "Vogue Knitting's editors; every one of the more than 1000 swatches, photographs, and illustrations was created specifically for this encyclopedic manual. The great attention to detail of content and organization of material increases its usefulness and value: chapters are color-coded for easy reference, and begin with a quick overview of all the information contained within. Do you need guidance on yarns, needles, and tools; basic techniques and specialized applications; explanations of knitting instructions (including terminology)? It's in here, along with diagnostics for correcting errors, directions for circular and double pointed knitting; advice on working in color; tricks for blocking, assembling, and finishing; plus fashion sections with up to the minute designs for sweaters. It's the first and last word in knitting! "A Selection of Crafter's Choice Book Club.

This is a must-have book for any serious knitter. It covers everything from simple stitch patterns to garment design, and it's one of the few that uses photos to illustrate patterns and techniques. Overall, this makesf or a great reference and learning tool.
