The Knitter's Book of Knowledge

Coming from the world of crochet, I found The Knitter's Book of Knowledge to be quite helpful. Author, Debbie Bliss, is one of the world's most respected knitwear designer, so when she came out with this complete guide to essential knitting techniques, I jumped on it.


With information on everything from yarns and needles to tensioning and casting on, from basic stitches to beading and buttonholes, you're sure to learn something new. This book also goes over cabling and entrelac to finishing embellishments; it's the perfect guide for those just learning to knit (like me), as well as experienced knitters.


Included in The Knitter's Book of Knowledge is a variety of techniques for color and texture embellishments, information on popular weights, types and fibers of yarn, how to design your own knits and how to troubleshoot when you've made a mistake, as well as a step-by-step guide to understanding the terminology and language of written patterns.


What I like most about this book is there's a section on understanding knitting; it truly is great for beginners. This section goes over basic knitted fabrics, reading knitting patterns and charted patterns, gauge, substituting yarn, marking rounds, putting in lifelines, picking up stitches and so much more.


This 320-page guide book is a must-have in every knitter's book collection. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned vet, you're going to love this book.
