4.0 out of 5 stars INFORMATIVE, 12 Dec. 2013

We got this for a 9 year old boy but decided there was a section in it we did not think was age appropriate so we have put it aside for a few more months but think it is very well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastically useful book, an essential in every handknitter's library, 29 May 2012
This is definitely a book I'll be keeping by my side to refer to again and again, wish I'd had it years ago!

As well as being a great reference book for advanced knitters and designers, The Handknitter's Yarn Guide is perfect for those yarn-curious knitters who have often wondered how to go 'off-pattern' and use different yarns to those recommended in the pattern guidelines. In the long-term it will encourage experimentation and confidence in yarn choices, a useful implement in an accomplished knitter's toolkit. The book gives comprehensive information about every conceivable yarn (including blends), plus useful yardage guides ... the key to deciding how much yarn to use for each project (and size).

The comments on stitch definition, drape and project recommendations are essential reading, as are the spec details (relative cost, range of weights and colors), all accompanied by the clear swatch photos showing the yarn knitted up in different stitches: stocking stitch, cable and lace.

Visually I find it incredibly clear and informative, and laid out in a way which makes it ideal for quick reference. Speaking of which, the excellent reference section in the back includes something which has often baffled me in the past: calculating yarn substitutes.

A fascinating guide for any yarn addict - highly recommended.
