Review quote

Knitting Cuff to Cuff: A Dozen Designs for Sideways-Knit Garments ôKnitting garments from cuff to cuff is a much easier way to create figure-flattering vertical stripes than are traditional methods of knitting up from the bottom ribbing of the sweater or down from the neckûjust one reason knitters might want to give knitting cuff to cuff a try. Fiber artist/instructor Guagliumi's (Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters) project book of 12 sweaters sized XS to XXL features nine garments for women, two for children, and one man's pullover. The author includes a chapter on adapting the patterns to machine knitting and information on using machine-knitting skills like scrapping on and scrapping off in hand knitting. Patterns are well written and very complete; they are complemented by schematics, charts, color photos, and step-by-step instructions. A good choice for public libraries where demand warrants.ö ûLibrary Journal, April 15, 2007show more
