5 out of 5 stars

I had been on the hunt for the past several years for a one-stop knitting reference that was thorough enough to offer well rounded techniques and options, but focused enough that it's easy to get to the information you need. This book is it. There is nothing superfluous in this book, and it covers everything you need techniques-wise. The visual are clear and easy to follow and the information is simple enough for someone who is working on their first project and comprehensive enough that I find it useful for the techniques I don't use often enough to memorize. I am often teaching and guiding new knitters, and this has become my go-to for reference. I have looked through easily two dozen+ other knitting guides and this is the only one I unreservedly recommend.

I have been knitting for 8 years. I taught myself to knit by watching YouTube videos and learning new techniques as needed to complete the projects I'm working on. I have a pretty terrible memory when it comes to recalling the steps required for various techniques, and find myself frequently returning to re-watch videos and re-learn steps. Our family is going camping and I will be outside of cell service for a week. I panicked because I'm knitting a cardigan (I don't often knit garments) and I was worried that I might forget how to properly do a wrap and turn, or increase stitches. Without service I would be left to rely on my own memory; this terrifying thought led me here to find a reference book I can take with me....and I found GOLD! This book is amazing! I wish I had purchased it YEARS ago! It's 320 pages of well organized instruction, illustration, and helpful tips. It is a book I will turn to over and over as I learn new techniques and review old ones. The instructions are very easy to understand, as are the illustrations. Just browsing this book I have learned better ways of doing things like striping when knitting in the round, and joining yarns mid-work. If you are looking for an ultimate knitting dictionary, this is it! I think every knitter should have this incredible book as part of their library.
