The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting, 2nd Edition By Margaret Hubert | Book Review
The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting, 2nd Edition: *All You Need to Know to Knit *The Essential Reference for Novice and Expert Knitters *Packed with ... and Photos for 200 Stitch Patterns is truly the ultimate reference book for knitters. The book has so many knitting patterns and techniques for the reader to enjoy, I have uploaded a video to give the viewer a similar experience to that of being in the book store and flipping through the book.
Before I learned to knit, I started out to be a yarn and fiber collector. Eventually I realized I really needed to make something with those materials so I learned to knit and crochet. Margaret's new book The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting 2nd Edition is the soup to nuts book I keep handy when I want to try out a new yarn and a new stitch or technique. It is my go to resource for new stitches, seeming, all the different increases and decreases and my favorite - color work! It is a wonderful stitch and technique reference book. Below is a look at the table of contents for this book.
If you are new to knitting you will learn all you need to know in this comprehensive resource and if you have been knitting a while there will undoubtedly be a few new stitches and tips that you will add to your skill set.
The photos in this book are bright and clear and the directions are easy to understand.
