Reviews for The Principles of Knitting
A superb, albeit heavy, book.
I purchased this book recently and already love it! Here you will find everything you need to know (and maybe even what you do't!) about knitting, from techniques to types of yarn, to problem solving.
This book is suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced knitters. The author is quite exhaustive in her explanations, so all you need to do is read carefully and follow the images to understand what to do.
It is quite a heavy book, so you won't be able to walk around with it easily, but it's great for when you have an hour or so to spare at home and just want to learn.
This is the revised edition, in which Ms Hiatt has taken the time to add more information and correct what might now be different from the 80's knitting world.
All in all, I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about knitting and wants to have all important information in one book. It's almost perfect - perfection would be if it came with a cd-rom or DVD with a few tutorials... Oh well, at least there is the internet for that. by Leonor Calacaunder review
