Every circular knitters dream book!
on 10 September 2013
I have found this book to be a bible for top down knitting, giving a huge size range for several basic styles that can easily be adapted to a multitude of patterns. With a little imagination & fairly basic knitting skills you can make thousands of garments for every generation. I am a fairly novice knitter, I have only been knitting for just under a year, and I have already knitted 3 garments, 2 kids & 1 adult, in 3 different styles and that is just using the raglan pattern, these 3 were sweaters but I have just started a cable cardigan (my 1st attempt at cables) & I can't believe how well my amateur skills are producing wearable clothing, & it's all thanks to this wonderful book.
The book even has tips and tricks for finishing off, plus suggestions for types of different castoffs, some of which I had never heard of but a quick google produces step by step videos which is also increasing my knitting skills, and the best part of all with top down knitting there is no sewing the pieces together!
I would not be without this book it is fantastic
