Many books only show basic skills in a superficial way.
In this hefty paperback Margaret Radcliffe has poured her considerable know how into words and photographs and diagrams that deal with many topics in depth.
For example I am currently attempting to pick up stitches on a curved edge to knit a border. In this book I can find explicit instructions with some photographs showing exactly what the needles should be doing.
I can't find this information anywhere except on Youtube. There are many examples of picking up stitches on the straight……but curved is hard!
Topics covered are many including: Pattern Yarn and Needles, Planning the Project, Modifying Your Pattern, Shaping and Fitting, Borders Bindings and Embellishments, plus more.
I chose this book because I trusted the author from a previous book and I am glad I did.
Margaret Radcliffe has jam packed this book with all her knitting wisdom to help the reader improve their skills and make the perfect garment. Even if you don't make your own designs and you follow someones elses jumper pattern this book will show you how to alter anything you're not happy with to make the garment more suitable for your shape or size. For me, this book is a real knitting treasure and a fountain of knowledge.
