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.
My gf and I have yet to discover a question that this book cannot answer - it really is that good.
The best thing is that it's just the right size to carry everyhere - totally great. Every knitter needs this book; it's just that some don't realise it yet!
An excellent resourcse for the beginner or experienced knitter, handy, portable, fits in your knitting bag easily. Brilliant!
