Reviews

"Trust Vogue. Those two words will enable any knitter, novice or pro, to refresh, renew, and learn new stitches and techniques. 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 (starred review)

"This revised and updated edition of the classic knitting guide continues the tradition of comprehensive information presented in a clear, concise manner. Significant content has been added on designing knitting patterns (with separate chapters for sweaters, shawls, and accessories), with photographs and overall design updated, and information reorganized to make it more accessible. 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." --Library Journal (starred review)
