Review quote

Oct 07 To celebrate Knits' tenth anniversary, 25 seminal projects (plus 11 "Beyond the Basics" technical columns) were culled to represent the essence of the magazine. The chosen pieces, never flashy, are noteworthy in their wearability and knitterly attributes. Highlights include Kate Gilbert's Union Square pullover with its angled color-tipped sleeves; Veronik Avery's Threepenny Pullover, a curvaceous cashmere-blend Aran; and Lana Hames's slinky Stripes Go Round, knit circularly with faux side seams. Norah Gaughan, Leigh Radford, Joan McGowan-Michael and others are all accounted for so beautifully, it feels like knit-picking to wonder whey there's no mention of the issues in which their lovely garments first appeared.

Our customer reviews

This is a wonderful book for beginners to improve and experienced knitters to improve and be inspired. Each pattern has detailed explanations of stitches and techniques. There are 25 patterns for women, men and accessories and a beautiful shawl and an even more stunning stole. As Interweave knits is an American company some of the yarns are difficult to grt in the UK but that is what the internet is or. With trial and error the yarns could be substituted. Try it - I don't think you will be disappointed.show more
