For this reference, substantially revised since the 1989 first edition and subsequent updates, the editors thoroughly re-vetted directions and explanations, with significant differences.
For instance, a tip now may cover how to improve cast-ons, and a technique description may address neatening the last loop.
Chapters are color-coded for ease of use. New, especially, is a chapter on constructing and designing accessories, such as balaclavas, chullos, mittens, gloves, and socks.
What's most impressive is the number offered of possible variations on a technique or stitch: 25 methods of casting on, 14 for binding off, and various choices of finishing and seaming.
Don't expect stitch swatches, however; what this guide provides is a thorough grounding in how to knit or design anything, completed by a good index, a bibliography, and eight pages of knitters' graph paper. --Booklist
The book is arranged by topic, with each chapter providing an in-depth guide to a specific skill or technique. A footer at the bottom of each page provides page references for topics addressed in the text or diagrams.
Full-color photographs and detailed drawings illustrate each topic, and the editors intersperse expert tips and techniques throughout. VERDICT An essential addition to the knitter's bookshelf.
