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!

Some useful and interesting sections on sweater sizing and customization, and a few neat tricks scattered throughout. This is hefty for a reference book, but it's not really useful for much else. Read full review
