5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow 6 Jun 2012
By glamgal
After 18 years abstainence from knitting, I decided to pick up my needles and get creative. I thought I would be able to recall all the simplicities of casting on (which I did), but when it came to decreasing, increasing, and various other terminologies, I didn't have a clue! Rita Taylor's handy little book may not be 'all that' to some well seasoned knitters, but to me it restored my confidence and awareness in my ability to knit again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy for any level of Knitter. 3 Feb 2011
By Roseann152 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this book but the reviews were favorable for all levels of knitters so I took a shot ... I am not disappointed. There are knitting techniques I absolutely know but always check myself on (certain cast-ons and sewing techniques) and this book is perfect in every way - info-wise, size (fits right into my knitting bag), style (clear cut instructions, nicely written) and info (again lots for any level knitter). In short, I'm very glad I bought it and I definitely recommend it as a travelling companion.
