Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Resource! From beginning knitter to advance artist knitter this book is worth its weight in gold. The photos are crisp, instructions clear, the volume of stitches unimaginable. An idea for this book is to do a square a day for the 400 stitches and put it together as an afghan. It would be gorgeous. Absolutely worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This book is awesome. The photos are bright and clear, the written instructions are easy to follow and best of all, the charts make sense! I could not put this book down. Best stitch dictionary I've ever read. Worth every cent for beginning to advanced knitters, especially designers.
