Publisher Comments:

In Knitting from the Center Out, Daniel Yuhas teaches knitters the fascinating technique of starting a project with just a few stitches and knitting outward, in revolutions (or circles). The book features 28 mesmerizing projects, ranging from baby blankets and lace shawls to sweaters and stuffed toys, and also includes tutorials for the minimal skills required for center-out knitting, such as special cast-ons, increases, and decreases. Throughout the book are enlightening explanations of the underlying math and the architecture of the flat and dimensional shapes. Clear instructions and beautiful photography and illustrations assure that knitters of all levels and inclinations — whether they are technique junkies or not — will want to have this book.

Review:

"Though he delivers almost thirty projects in this premiere volume, Yuhas is just warming up. We'll be hearing more from him: Someday we'll look back and say, this is the book that launched a thousand cone hats." Vogue Knitting

Review:

"We love the sorting hat....You can be the Gryffindor of your dreams....He has figured out the science...and we can all benefit from that." Knitcircus podcast

Review:

"Odd. Even geeky. Yet there's no question that Portland-based revolutionary knitter Yuhas is onto something. His premise is simple: start knitting at the middle/center of the item, which he categorizes into five shapes: tubes, cones, circles, domes, and ruffles. What's so odd? His mathematical sidebars (on Fibonacci, for instance) and a few titles in his recommended reading: Michael S. Schneider's A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe (1994), for one." Booklist, Starred Review

Review:

"His passion for the topic is apparent, and adventurous knitters will appreciate the opportunity to learn something new here." Library Journal

Finally...I book that doesn't assume I know everything about knitting and pattern reading. The 'sorting hat' is adorable, as well.
Thank you, Daniel, for taking the frustration factor down to zero. Keep writing!

This is a well written book with a lot of tips about the technique. There are projects for everyone and every occasion. Toys, hats, blankets, sweaters, and socks. Good diagrams, and clearly written explanations of each step. I am an experienced knitter, used to reading poorly written patterns and able to figure out what the authors have left out assuming everyone would "know" what was intended. I believe a novice knitter could complete these projects with just a little bit of help. Worth the price!
