Format: Hardcover
I absolutely love this book. It is for everyone from beginner to expert. Even if you consider yourself an expert I can guarantee there will be something in this book that you have never tried before. It covers everything from the basics of how to cast on and do the basic knit and purl stitches,to creating textured knits. Increases and decreases, colourwork, knitting in the round, buttonholes, adding beads and edgings,short rows, gathers, and even mitred squares and spirals. There are some lovely projects in it too. And being a Dorling Kindersley product it is full of fantastic colour photographs.

This book is far better than I could have hoped for - well-explained and beautifully illustrated with photographs throughout, I've been using it for a day and already learned 10 new ways to cast on that I didn't before! The instructions are clear, the stitch pattern gallery is gorgeous and the information at the beginning about different kinds of yarn and needles are really priceless for someone just starting out.

I haven't tried any of the patterns yet but I've had a quick flick through the selection and they look nicely varied and modern. I really can't praise this book enough, my only issue with it is that it's very heavy and I managed to drop it on my foot, OUCH!

Full of techniques and extensive stich library with such beautiful photography. It prompts me to tackle some stiches straight away. Althogh it may take a while to digest the whole book for a biginner knitter like myself, it far exceeded my expectation.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book specifically for the projects and stitch gallery. The latter is good, but the former is appalling. In all the patterns I tried, it either did not add up or was so vague (especially for beginners) that it was impossible to finish any of them! This is the first time I have issues with patterns. The stitches numbers do not add up, some terms are used which are nowhere else explained in the book, not enough information is supplied (i.e. on which needles do you cast on/ pick stitches), etc.

I own this book. Whilst it is very good for consulting on tools, materials and techniques, the project patterns contained within pages 272 - 353 are full of mistakes.

Best knitting book I have ever read! Even for an experienced knitter there is so much to learn from it. Like other reviewers I was particularly impressed by the photography- which is bright and clear. The only critisism I can think of is that it is hard to curl up in an armchair and knit with it open on your knee being so big, but that doesn't detract from how good the book actually is.

I'm a reasonably experienced knitter and have been adapting patterns and developing my own tecniques for years. I found this book really informative and helpful and it will be a perfect reference book for tricky patterns in the future.
