She presents Fair Isle, twined, helix, tubular, and other classic techniques in detailed step-by-step photographic sequences. Thirty-five demonstration projects let readers try out each new technique on a mini-version of a sock, hat, bag, mitten, sweater, or vest before applying it to a larger project. Radcliffe also shows readers how to convert patterns written for straight needles to circular.Whether they're looking for a quick answer to a specific problem or a complete course in knitting in the round, knitters of all levels and interests will find `Circular Knitting Workshop` to be just what they need.
