The list author says: "There are the pattern books, some of them wonderful, some not so much. Then there are the books that will turn you into a knitter, set you free from written patterns and help you predict the results of your efforts. No serious knitter should be without these books!"
"Read this book will teach you how to predict not only how your knitted garment will look, but how it will behave long after it's off the needles. You'll also learn how to assess a pattern with a critical eye, as well as find numerous invaluable tips."
