I can tell that the author of this book likes math. I hate math. Math is my nemesis. I think that I need more right brain friendly explanations of knitting. The concept of this book is great. And it probably works well for people who are good at math and spatial relationships. I know that knitting patterns are mathematical and I like that this author tries to demystify knitting by helping the knitter to learn how to "read" the knitting and fix mistakes. It sounds like such a helpful and wonderfu ...more

This is a very awesome learn-to-knit book with chapters on basic knitting skills, along with chapters to practice those skills before moving on to the next. Skills include knitting and perling, increases and decreases, cabling, lacework, and knitting in the round. The one thing this book doesn't have is an exhaustive index.

This is the perfect next step for those who have mastered knitting, purling, casting on, and casting off.

I worked my way most of the way through the exercises in this book and did, in fact, learn some new skills! A very handy tool for learning techniques you thought were too difficult for a beginning or intermediate knitter to do. A few places, I had to go on youtube to actually see done the techniques they were describing on the page, but ultimately, I had a very successful experience with this.

Good for projects that help advance your skills through very levels. Covers tools and technique although the print is a little small and the choice of "colored inks" for printing makes it a little difficult to read at times.

I did not know the first thing about knitting. I started with the first project and worked my way through. I can now tackle any knitting project with success.
