I've made a number of garments with this book already: socks, hats, hand warmers, mittens, and even a sweater (which was a piece of cake!). As I've worked on these knitted items, I've begun to get a much better understanding of knitting (patterns aren't so mysterious after all), and I'm finding that I don't even need the book all the time when I want to create something new. On top of that, I've grown really frustrated with run-of-the-mill patterns because they're often so poorly written and buggy. Why struggle through that when I can use this clear, well-written book to create my own unique items?
Visually knitting book more than any of the others. I used to buy
knitting books based on how they looked, but I'm so tired of getting
these books that look beautiful, but contain instructions that are
riddled with errors or are just plain incomprehensible. These books are
not like that. (I also have the sewing one in addition to these 2
knitting books.) I have only just gotten this latest book, but I have
already started to make a fun bag, and my first pair of socks. I didn't
even have to go out and buy special yarn, because the book contains
instructions for making all of the things (scarves, mittens, wrist
warmers, gloves, sweaters, hats, bags etc) in several sizes AND gauges.
I was able to just use yarn I had on hand.
Like the other Visually Knitting book, this one is chock full of useful
information, clear illustrations and photos and very clear
instructions. I could use just this one book to make hundreds of
My mom sent me this book recently hoping it would solve my knitting dilemma, and to my amazement, it has! Though I am by no means the best knitter, this book makes it easy to make the image in my head correspond with the product that emerges from my needles. It is so fun to see a product in an expensive boutique and know that I could make it for half the cost, in a better color no less.
I own Sharon Turner's other two books, and therefore did not need any convincing to explore this latest one she has written. But for anyone who is not certain if this product will suit your needs, I encourage you to buy it and take a look. You won't be sorry!
I find this book to be particularly useful when used in combination with other knitting books. Often I will see instructions for knitting a jumper where I like the intarsia design on the front, but I don't like the style of the jumper. By using this book, I can design the style of jumper that I want to wear and then add the intarsia design to the front of that.
This book is very well presented, with much of the vital information provided in easy to read tables. There are colour photographs throughout and detailed instuctions (with illustrative photos) are given on the basic knitting techniques. This is the most useful knitting book that I own and I highly recommend it to knitters of all skill levels.
