    2. As a completely self taught knitter I would have loved this book Margaret Radcliffe deploys her many years of teaching experience to guide a novice knitter through casting on, the knit and purl stitches, increasing, decreasing and how to create left and right leaning decreases, and finally binding casting off She teaches the most common style of knitting in the U.S Where the lead yarn is carried in the right hand and whipped around the left needle Also included is an easy to understand explanati [...]

    3. A thorough and well written guide to the many questions advancing knitters will have The photos guiding your path through these discussions are excellent This guide offers advice on construction, gauge adjustment, evaluating a pattern and choosing the appropriate yarn There is even an entire chapter just covering pattern modification and another dedicated to converting a flat pattern to circular knitting My favorite is the chapter on fixing mistakes This is not a pattern book, there are no proje [...]

    4. The Knowledgeable Knitter is geared for the advanced knitter who wants to start customizing knits, particularly sweaters although the techniques are transferable to other patterns This would be an excellence reference book to have on the shelf ready for use when contemplating a new project What I like best about this book are the comparison pictures For example, the author shows samples of what the outcome looks like if you use different casting on techniques, different weights of yarn, or diffe [...]

    5. Well, I did learn something reading this book It s that I will never ever attempt to knit a sweater.I already knew that, but this really did confirm it for me The plus side is, this book is crammed full of useful information Including diagrams and photos that would be perfect for someone who is either learning how to knit a sweater, or knows how and just needs a little assistance.Unfortunately, though, it s also really dry Really, really dry It s not a read through book The best use would be for [...]

    6. This is a book for people who love knitting and want to learn techniques and understand everything about it As far as I ve read of the other review comments, the only ratings below 4 stars were from non knitters Great explanations, great pictures, and I like the way the book is organized An essential text for serious students of knitting craft.

    11. This might be a good pick for the handy reference I m looking for It covers just about everything, with beautiful photographed illustrations of all kinds of things blocking, for example, and samples of the same pattern done in six different yarns It covers all the contingencies I can think of and if I can t think of something, I ll never use it later.

    12. I received a free digital ARC of this book from the publisher and I wound up liking it so much that I pre ordered a paperback of the book not free This book will not teach beginning knitters how to knit, but is a very useful book for both beginners and experienced knitters who want to know how to get the results they are looking for in their knitting There are no knitting patterns or projects in this book, it is of a guide book for making decisions at each step of the process It describes how [...]

    13. We have here something of an amusing irony this is a book dedicated largely to knitting basics, AND YET this is decidedly not a book for knitting beginners I would never ever give this book to a beginner, because it would straight up terrify them Imagine like trying to teach a teenager to make a pudding pie using a guide to troubleshooting French pastry, and you will get some idea of how unsuitable this book is for beginners However, let s say that you are looking for the knitting equivalent of [...]

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley I didn t realize that this book was for the advanced knitter of which I am not I love to knit even though I still make a lot of mistakes I am slowly learning techniques and trying to make mistakes less frequently I m not comfortable enough to draft my own patterns or even to modify an existing pattern Someday in the future when I am advanced enough I can see myself finding a copy of this book to learn new techniques, or to help me [...]

    16. This book is way beyond my current skills, so I m taking it back to the library for now I m at the level of knitting scarves and learning to make patterns beyond the basic stockinette, and this book is about the higher level techniques a person would use to make a sweater that fits well, adjusting the pattern to make whatever customizations are wanted.I did learn a few things from it, and I m holding on to the title, because I do hope to improve my skills to the point where I might want to come [...]
