The Principles of Knitting: Methods and Techniques of Hand Knittingby June Hemmons Hiatt
When it went out of print in the mid-1990s, The Principles of Knitting became one of the most sought-after books on the subject. Those who had a copy guarded it jealously, while those unwilling/unable to part with several hundred dollars for a used knitting book were forced to cobble together various instruction manuals and pick each others' brains in the hopes of amassing the wealth of knitting know-how contained in Hiatt's book. If you've been pining after the copy on your friend's shelf or in your local bookstore, your days of waiting are over. The Principles of Knitting is back in print, in a completely revised and updated edition, with 100 additional pages and more than 900 illustrations... all for less than 50 bucks! Whether you're new to knitting and looking for the most comprehensive introduction on the market, or a veteran knitter looking to round out your knitting library, this is the book for you.
