Each time I knit something from this book, I get compliments while out in public. People can't believe that I can make a baby blanket that starts as a small circle, or a triangular shawl that starts as a small circle. The patterns are fresh approaches to traditional garments... going boldly where no circular needle has gone before. One of the quickest patterns in the book is a small "Medallion Cap" that I make quite often for baby gifts. This is definitely the best pattern book I own, the one I ...more

While I do love to knit using circular needles, I've never really thought much about the possibilities of centre-out knitting. This book expanded the horizon of what I thought was possible using the centre-out technique. From socks that start at the heel, a jumper that starts at the hood and a necklace-like scarf made just out of icord, Knitting From the Center Out tests the boundaries of circular "revolutionary" knitting. While some of it falls into the 'just because you can doesn't mean you ...more

A book of patterns with full explanations of the logic behind them, so you can sort of make sense of what will happen in the pattern next before you get there; so you can apply the design logic to your own weird experiments; so you can learn techniques while doing the project but also easily understand the parameters of the technique isolated from the pattern. Contains the first written explanation of "magic loop" that I have been able to understand, and now I think it's crazy that I never knew ...more

I made one of the blankets, and it is lovely. I used the recommended yarn, and ignored gauge advice. Needless to say I ran out of yarn before I was supposed to. No worries, it was still the "right" size, and I picked a pattern that was forgiving of just that issue on purpose. :-) This book was very helpful in learning hat (dome) construction, also. Somehow, learning it this way was a lot easier than the other ways that others have tried to explain it. :-)

There's a blanket in here I'm in love with. And some socks. I like looking at these lovely objects and imagining some universe in which I would have skill enough, and time, to make them. But almost everything looks ridiculously complicated, and patterns with charts strike terror into my soul. So, basically, this is knitting porn.

I love knitting in the round with no seaming. This book presents an alternative to most knitting in the round patterns and also instructs how to be successful using magic loop. Patterns are of "full range" variety. Picked up the book for the starfish pattern but found a few more to try.

Agreeably mathematically centric, presented at a level that most twelve-year-olds ought to understand, with a sidebar on Fibonacci sequences, e.g. I look forward to knitting several of these projects. (Yes, I read fibercraft books for themselves sometimes.)

I waited four months for this book to come from the library after I did a KWIC search for entrelac knitting patterns.
No entrelac in there at all ...

Interesting patterns but nothing that caught my eye which is rare...guess I will print a pattern off the net.

While I haven't attempted any of the patterns in this book yet, it certainly has stimulated my creative juices. I think that it is appropriate for experienced knitters looking for new challenges.

Very much enjoyed many of the patterns. Several a whimsical and good for kids like octopuses. Great for Intermediate knitters willing to take some risks.

Once I actually gain some skill in knitting, I would like to attempt a few of these projects. As of right now, though, I am only able to knit a simple scarf.

Interesting, easy to understand, unusual concept garments, well written and illustrated... but not my thing.

This book was great to look through. All the projects are cute, but not anything I'd knit necessarily.
