I was new to knitting, and read many book reviews related to instructional knitting. I went to the book store...and was immediately disappointed at the instructional content, as well as the method of instruction in newly printed books. America's Knitting Book seemed to have the most consistant positive feedback I could find for any knitting instructional book, so I decided to purchase it. Not available new...I searched here for used and was lucky enought to find one. It is the most complete....reader friendly...unbelievably valuable "new knitter" reference book I have seen. I would highly recommend it for any person new to knitting. I have heard from vintage knitting friends of mine, that the book also has many valuable tips that they found very useful.

This is an old book (1968)and a former library book, so it has markings and the usual wear and tear. However, it is a very informative knitting book that has everything for both beginners and advanced knitters. The illustrations are in black and white but they are pretty clear. The photos are also in black and white and not very attractive, but they serve their purpose. Overall, this book is a great value for the price ($4.73 including shipping). I'm glad I bought this book.

I also have Gertrude Taylor's "America's Crochet Book". Ms. Taylor does a fantastic job of showing & explaining all manner of stitches & techniques in both books. Having found the crochet book so helpful motivated me to seek out & buy the knitting book.
