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.
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.
