This is a stunning book, introducing a fascinating new way of creating knitted fabrics. Many shapes fit together, but by cunning us of short row techniques the "picking up of stitches" is much reduced, and there are few ends to weave in. It sounds complicated, but the tutorial sections explain the techniques in such detail that it becomes easy!
Following the tutorials are some beautiful patters for scarves, hats, shawls, bags, cushion covers... When you begin to knit these, you find they are impossible to put down. Watching the fabric grow is fascinating - especially if you use variegated or hand-painted yarn.
This book is suitable for recent beginners, because it uses mostly the knit stitch plus increasing and decreasing. It is also a revelation for experienced knitters. I know several people who are making their Christmas presents from the patterns in this book. The book itself would make a lovely present too. Any knitter will love it.

I bought this because I wanted to learn the technique set out in the book and it had good reviews. It is an interesting and useful technique, but this book is awful. It seems that most of the patterns in the book are scarves, the rest are shawls, blankets and cushions with a couple of others. There is not one pattern in this book I want to knit! I don't very often leave a negative review for anything, but I am so disappointed. Even the way the techniques are explained seems sketchy to me, as if they wanted to leave more space for the patterns. It's the patterns that are really poor though, it's got that 'bad taste knitting' thing to it that you see in older knitting patterns and books, with photos that lack style. I think I will get round to trying the technique one day, but this book certainly hasn't inspired me to get going with it. I hate to waste money and this is one of those times when I could have avoided it if I'd been able to see the book before buying.

This is a new approach to an obscure form of knitting that has surfaced

a few times in the past century. Previous attempts to produce this

finish have required cutting the yarn and re-joining with the inherent

problem of sewing in the loose ends and loosing your place easily. The

author has overcome these problems by using the short row technique

used in turning the heel of a sock. The results are inspirational,

once you have mastered the casting off and making new stitches concept,

and the multidirectional nature of the knitting as opposed to the usual

horizontal method.

Once the technique is assimilated into the brain and fingers the range

of garments to be created is endless and for those whose first attempts

result in frustration there is a Yahoo multidirectional group to join.
