Reviews - What do our customers think?
helpful for all levels  Mar 2, 2008
This is an extremely well written book. The visual examples provided are what sold me on it. I have been knitting for years, and still found useful "tidbits". I wanted to learn how to crochet and this book helped me do it. It's very methodically written, taking you from step to step, and it seems to be very complete in the process. Great for everything from starters to finishing a project.
Great for Beginning Knitters  Jan 12, 2008
When I opened this book I was very impressed by the clear, detailed photographs showing me how to knit every step of the way.
This book also discusses the qualities and uses of different types of yarn based on ply and fiber. One thing I found very helpful is that it tells you what all those care symbols on the yarn label mean.
The projects in this book are mostly tasteful and not hideously tacky like they are in so many other learners' books. Being a guy, I have a hard time finding a lot of good patterns that I like in general. There is a nice mens' sweater in here that I actually might consider wearing, and a hat that could be made for either a guy or girl.
After reading this book you will know how to read a pattern and all the basic, many intermediate, and some advanced stitches. You will also know how to fix your mistakes, make a buttonhole, shape your project, change colors, and how to join your knitted pieces together.
This book also features a small section (about 1/6 of the book) on crocheting, which I already know how to
do quite well. It does a good job of teaching you all the basics and shows how to do a couple stitches. However, it is not nearly as comprehensive as the knitting section. This is the only reason I don't give this book five stars. The only projects they give you are two scarves. I would say that if you are more interested in learning how to knit than crochet, this book is worthwhile, but I would buy another book to supplement it if you want to know more stitches and have a variety of patterns to choose from.
Overall, I would very highly recommend this book, and would give it four and a half stars if I could.
Maran Illustrated Knitting and Crocheting  May 14, 2007
Very clear instructions illustrated by excellent photos. I think I got my money's worth because it teaches two crafts: knitting and crocheting. I taught myself to knit by reading knitting books and magazines but this book enhances my knowledge of knitting techniques because of the excellent illustrations. I used to crochet, too, but I've forgotten how because I haven't done it for so long, so I plan to refresh my knowledge of this craft by reading this book.
Excellent resource  May 13, 2007
I got this book to re-learn how to crochet and learn how to knit for the first time. I learned crochet when I was about 8 and never continued it, but once I got this book I was able to pick it up within a week's time and have since become very good at it. The pictures are large and clear and show each step. The knitting section is also very good, though I didn't quite pick that up as easily :) There are sections on yarn types, basic stitches, and many sample patterns to practice each type of stitch. They even give you sample photos of a swatch so you can get a feel for what you're making before you dive in. I do think that yarn work is something that not all people have a mind for (just like painting or woodworking - while great hobbies, not all people will excell at them), but this is an excellent resource nonetheless.
What an exceptional book!!!!!  Jan 6, 2007
An old knit-aholic like me has many books about stitches, knitting,etc.

This book is an absolute must in the library of a new knitter or an old one like myself. Beautiful illustrations/clear color photos showing each and every step, well laid out, everything you ever wanted to know about knitting. The back 25-30% of the book is equally great for crocheting, from starting out to finished projects.

This book has stitches and also patterns for many items throughout.
Don't regret missing out on getting this book!!!
