I completely agree that this is an essential reference for anyone who loves knitting.

This is a great small reference. I wanted to knit a scarf from a magazine, and the pattern contained a scant amount of directions. It included a provisional cast-on and a picot bind-off. I'm glad this book was in my reference library. The instructions are clearly written and the color photos do show the stitch details. It has a spiral binding which allows it to lie flat on your lap while you knit. I also learned a trick to improve both my cable and knit cast-on. Great for your reference library.
