Nicely organised, spiral bound (so lies flat by itself - no putting heavy things on the corners), a short list of pro's and con's and all the major players in the cast on and bind off world are covered.

There are also some more unusual ones including ones specifically for colour work and 'fancy' hems.

A resource I use freqently to add polish to knitted items and add a 'twist' for knitter friends' gifts.

Great book when you want to quckly look at the technique of either Cast on or Bind off. Have referred to it many times, & photos are quite detailed. Each technique highlights the pros & cons, & which time to use such a technique. I also like the spiral bound cover, lies flat when you're hands are already occupied. There is a index on the front cover for the Cast On, & an index on the back cover for the Bind offs, so is quite easy & quick to navigate! Highly recommend
