The Knowledgeable Knitter
A thorough, clearly explained guide to garment knitting, from choosing a pattern all the way through to altering an imperfect finished sweater.Print book
"Despite the incredible amount of knitting information available online I still find myself frequently turning to, and recommending, reference books. As we search online, picking and choosing techniques to solve immediate problems we often miss building up a good overview, and it's hard to search for things you don't know you don't know. There are several excellent references available but for anyone interested in making successful garments Margaret Radcliffe's The Knowledgeable Knitter provides the perfect balance of a wealth of clearly explained information without being utterly overwhelming."
