    Format: Spiral-bound
    Knitting continues to be one of the most widespread and popular of the needlecraft pastimes. Designed for the novice but containing of wealth of practical information of interest and value to even the more experienced knitter, Rita Taylor's "Knitting 200 Q&A" is a compendium of definitive answers to some two hundred practical questions about every aspect of the knitting process from 'What is a three-needle bindoff?' to 'What is double knitting?', to 'Why do some pattern instructions contain an asterisk?'. The sturdy spiral binding will allow this unique instruction manual to lie flat upon the table for accessible study while hands are otherwise engaged with needles and yarns. Profusely illustrated with examples and step-by-step instructions throughout, "Knitting 200 Q&A" is a relatively compact and thoroughly 'user friendly' reference that is enthusiastically recommended for personal and academic library Needlecraft reference collections.

    I borrowed this book from the public library. After going through it, I decided it was well worth owning. There are alot of answers to knitting questions answered that anyone can understand.

    This book was recommended by a friend to have on hand as a reference tool for beginners. She has been knitting for several years now and considers this a useful tool.

    I think this book is very useful. It's not too big, it has very good information of the kind that is not usually seen in most knitting guides. The smaller size of 6.4 inches by 7.9 inches and spiral binding makes this hardback book very easy to handle and read.
