An invaluable reference book for knitters,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finishing Techniques for Handknitters (Paperback)
I've seen a LOT of knitting books and this is one of the few that (as a professional knitting teacher) I am happy to recommend. It's not cool and trendy and the patterns are definitely dated, but to learn essential and timeless techniques for giving your knitting a neat and professional finish it is one of the best books out there. If you're looking for a book for a complete beginner, this might seem too advanced, but use it alongside my book Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner and you'll soon be knitting up garments and gifts that anyone would be pleased to wear or receive as a gift. Even after knitting for over 30 years, I still use this book regularly for myself and when teaching knitting classes. Thank you Jane Crowfoot!
