Reviews - What do our customers think?
For Adventurous Beginners  Sep 18, 2008
As a beginning knitter, this was just what I needed when my sweetie requested a pair of mittens. How was I to jump from the dishcloths that I had been making to more complicated items? I picked up this book and jumped in. And successfully completed my first pair of mittens.

The patterns are very basic, so I suspect most experienced knitters will avoid this book. But if you're new to knitting garments, you will be successful.

A small warning to beginners, you will want to check Interweaves errata pages for corrections to the patterns. And unless you're very experienced at reading patterns and charts, you might want to have a more experienced knitter on call. I was hopeless lost at one point with the mittens, until a more experienced knitting friend was able to walk me through the instructions with a more lucid explanation of the book's chart.
must have  Sep 2, 2008
I've had this book for several years and love it! This book allows me to knit using all kinds of scrap yarns. I love that I can easily figure out the gauge to make any size with any yarn. The finishing techniques are easy to understand and have clear simple illustrations. If you like the freedom to create your own pieces this is a great reference.
The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges (Interweave)   May 2, 2008
This is a book for the serious knitter who wants to make items larger or smaller. The "how to" do this and other adjustment problems in knitting is discussed and shown. A useful book for making something fit!
The one book you can't knit without  Apr 30, 2008
If you ever needed just one knitting book, this is it. This is like having milk and butter and eggs in the fridge. You can't make anything without it.
there is a good solid foundation of pattern, technique and freedom of design. I also highly value all the gauges that are provided, because I never have the yarn for the pattern, or vice versa. It takes a lot of guesswork and frustration out of sizing.
I have owned this book three times, because someone has always 'borrowed' it, and I never got it back! This last one doesn't leave my house so I don't have to buy another one! Now go! create! enjoy!
Finally, a book for me . . .  Dec 27, 2007
I'm an advanced beginning knitter, ready to progress beyond scarves and caps. The book has templates for those things, as well as socks, mittens, vests, and pullovers. I want to knit a sweater, but the patterns I'd found before didn't work out for me. I like the fact that this one doesn't get into which yarn or needle size to use, it just shows you what to do for whichever gauge you choose to work with. You don't have to choose $200 yarn to make a basic vest.

With the different gauge instructions in the book, you can actually take measurements and fit something to the person you're making it for. Since I'm not familiar with garment construction (haven't sewn before), this allows me to make just a basic sweater to get used to doing that. When I get good at that, then I can experiment, maybe use a finer gauge and some different colors, design my own. I like the flexibility of it.

Anyhow, you won't be sorry--buy this book if you want to make, well, just about anything!
