As a fairly new knitter I've been looking for a book that lists techniques and pattern ideas so I can try out different things before embarking on actual patterns. I think this book is great for that! It gives a lot of basic need to know kitting techniques as well as more complicated things like turning a heel when making socks and the "special techniques" section at the back is good for when you become more advanced and want to know about different ways to cast on and things like that.
What I really wanted it for was the different stitch patterns so I could practice with swatches and scarves etc. They are easy to follow and have good pictures so you can clearly see what you are knitting.
