Format: Paperback
This book is small enough to fit into a pocket - or the bottom of a bag of knitting - but still large enough to contain tips on almost every aspect of knitting you may need to refer to.

Want to try a different cast-on or bind-off? Check here.
Can't remember how to do M1 increases? This book has several.
Want suggestions on garment shaping? Those are in here.

It does not have patterns, but it's not designed for that - it's a reference book for the many techniques of knitting, and it does very well at that.

This has everything a knitter could possibly need to know written in easy to understand language and can be carried everywhere as it will fit into most handbags.

There aren't any knitting patterns but that is not what this book is about.

An ideal present for a new knitter or even a seasoned one.

I've been knitting for 30 years, and this book has every answer to every question I can come up with. As a crafts instructor in London, I recommend it to my students all the time. It's the perfect size to carry around; it's like having a knitting teacher in your pocket.

This book has ALL the knitting answers! I have not knitted for some time, and I was in need of some refreshing, and this book provided all the things I didn't remember and much more, things I always wanted to know how to do and didn't know how! The most amazing thing is that it's really tinny for all the info it has, with very helpful and simple drawings. I already bought another one to give as a gift!

I have been knitting for many years now however I bought this book and there's lots of tips on how to correct areas of my knitting that I've found irritating over the years. As it's small (but perfectly formed!) I keep it in my knitting bag.

It's a small book so you can carry it around easily and it's in a Q&A format with a very detailed table of contents so you can look things up quickly. I wish I'd had it when I started knitting. It answers the kind of questions beginners ask but you'd take for granted if you had some experience.

This book saved my latest project! Packed with easy to access solutions and advice. UK readers may find a few of the US knitting terms an irritation, like stockinette stitch for stocking stitch, but really, they are not a problem. A really useful additon to any knitter's arsenal!
