    Doing an auditinventory of my books and found this one stuffed behind some others I've had this book for several years I was given it when I first started to learn to knit and it's a good reference for new knitters or anyone who needs a refresher on a skill or techniue I usually use Youtube for this nowadays though which is why this book was collecting dust in the shadows But everyone is different and some people learn better being able to read instructions so this is a good book for that

    This book is great for learning new techniues and fancy stitches It starts at the beginning for people who have never knitted before It is lacking in patterns though I think it only has a very basic pattern for things like a hat scarf mitten glove and sweater I haven't made anything from this book but I have certainly referred to it to learn something for different patterns Very useful as a refresher if you haven't picked up your needles in a while too

    This book is a nice book divided into different sections to help knitters with specific things they might need help with so it is easy to open to one section and get the help for that item and then put away until next help is reuired
