I am glad that I've found this book. After many attempts to knit in the round I finally could learn how to do it. Circular knitting has only advantages, it is much easier than having to turn the work after every row, much more ergonomic and plus,you can knit pieces without having to seam afterwards. I really could learn from the step-by-step tutorials with photos. I had no idea of so many ways you can use circular needles and you don't even have to bother with dpn's anymore.

I bought this book, having borrowed it initially from the library, it is brilliant! One of the main reasons I bought this is due to the patterns given can be easily adapted for different thickness of yarns for each project. For example, the writer shows you how to knit say socks/hat/glove but shows you what needle size/ply and gauge for each pattern in each different yarn so you don't have to sit and adapt the pattern to the yarn you have. I have never seen this done in a knitting book before, just brilliant. As I'm still a beginner, this really helps.

What a complete and utter waste of time - I thought this book would hlep me as a beginner sort of into the circular knitting world, but I was very disappointed as this book is fairly useless!!

Save your money and don't buy it!

I'm selling mine on!

Comprehensive reference for circular knitting 15 Jun. 2011
By Kristi C. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have always been a visual learner. When I decided a few years ago to relearn how to knit I ended up getting a couple of CD-ROMs (remember those?) to use on my laptop. It gave me the basics, and I supplemented with other books and classes over the years. Teach Yourself Visually: Circular Knitting would have been in my hands if it existed, and I am still glad it is now.

This book takes you from the basics of what you actually need for not just circular knitting, but handy accessories in general, on to the various cast-ons and methods used in circular knitting. Techniques for common problems, like how many times I have twisted when I joined the cast-on row, or caused jogs when colors are changed, are outlined along with how techniques are adjusted from flat to circular knitting. You can knit a flat pattern chart in the round!

The projects range from a basic ear warmer to various pullovers in stripes and cables. For the hat, mitten and sock projects Melissa shows you how to take measurements to adapt each one for fit. Each pattern comes with helpful hints, such as "Choosing Your Yarn" when making the Double-Thick Potholder or "Choosing Your Stitch Pattern" when you move up to socks. Melissa emphasizes when you must knit a swatch for gauge (sigh) and how to not be afraid of steeks in a project (gasp). Applying scissors to knitted objects are as scary as cables, but maybe with guidance I will find myself with one of the lovely projects provided. Chapters on various stitch patterns to liven up your circular projects and technique overviews complete the book.

I have been fortunate to actually take a class with Melissa before, and now I feel I have a way to go back to her instruction at any time with Teach Yourself Visually: Circular Knitting. Whether this is the first time you are picking up circular knitting needles or you have been doing it for years, this book will be a handy reference for all.

5 for the book contents but BIG negative Kindle version 9 April 2012
By Pam L. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I decided to buy the Kindle version of this book. I have a Kindle, but I wanted this particular book specifically for my PC. The book is gorgeous! Great pictures. Appears to have plenty of information. Sounds great, right? It is. Up to a point. The Kindle version does not have page numbers. Big problem as the book refers the reader on numerous occasions to specific page numbers. Very frustrating as it is very difficult to locate the page. I returned the ebook, but, I am definately getting the paperback version.

Updated review 1-8-12: As promised, I did get the regular book version. It was on my wish list and I received it as a Christmas gift. I am beyond pleased with it. Gorgeous, gorgeous book brimming with information. I could not be more pleased!

This book is a must have for your library. As with all "Teach Yourself Visually" publications it is beautifully presented. The most intricate details are described clearly and are easily understood. Photos and diagrams are fantastic and add to the ease of learning the craft. The book is suitable for a beginner or experienced person wishing to learn a few more tricks/methods about a this particular craft.

For the Circular Knitter who is challenged. 19 Jun. 2011
By OneMtnGirl - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is awesome and I am glad that I bought it. It offers a wide variety of tips and tricks for those who are circularly challenged as I am. The photographs are excellent and the drawings are too. I am really happy I bought it. My next purchase will be the Teach Yourself VISUALLY Knitting (Teach Yourself VISUALLY Consumer) . I checked it out at the library and it awesome, too. I would recommend all of these learn by visual books to both friends and family. I have been making socks the magic loop method and everyone loves them. Check out VeryPinkKnits on Youtube. She has patterns and videos. GREAT ones, too.

I was having problems following some sock patterns I've had for a long time. This book helped me finish a pair without the frustration I lived with in trying to follow the other patterns.
