This book contains the same information found in the book No Pattern Knits by the same authors. This book appears to be an earlier version, and I think a more complete one. I was able to check No Pattern Knits out from the library. When I saw this book I had to wonder if it was about the same as the other. Well, it is, and it isn't. The information is the same, but there is a lot more of it in this book. I felt that this book gives more inspriration than the other title. It contains no actual patterns. All the pictures are line drawings except for a few color plates. They stated that they did this so you would not be distracted by the colors, but concentrate on the shapes. The other title is more recent and is full of color pictures. It also contain a few patterns to get you going. But, I don't think it is contains as much written info. and wasn't as inspiring to me. So, either is fine, but I don't really think you need both. Depending on what your preference is, either is good to learn modular knitting from.

UPDATE: I checked the No Pattern Knits out again to make sure my memory was correct. Now that I've seen it again, I really think both books would be good to have. While the majority of the information is the same, they both also contain info that the other book doesn't have. And the pictures in the more recent book are outstanding. The patterns are cute too. I still think Woolly Thoughts has more technical info. Both would be great additions to your knitting library.

I absolutely LOVE this book! It makes knitting simple but NEVER boring. Step by step instructions as well as drawn illustrations. It explains how you can and should use math in your knitting AND how it is not in the least bit frightening. From one simple garter stitch square, your creations are limitless. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone.

Here's a book for all of you who love geometric designs and knitting in one! This book teaches knitters to think outside the words "gauge" and "do this step now". This book is not full of patterns (just an FYI) but rather teaches knitters to think outside the box and produce wonderful works! Well worth the money!!

Format: Paperback
Woolly Thoughts: Unlock Your Creative Genius with Modular Knitting (Dover Knitting, Crochet, Tatting, Lace)If you are looking for instructions on how to improve your knitting skills, construct a garment like a sweater or cardigan, fit it to your size and have a pleasing mix of colors and structures to boot, this is your book. Famous Woolly Thoughts authors Pat Ashforth and Steve Plummer are masters in making things easy to understand. Drawings and instructions are clear and uncluttered, and most importantly: not one step of the knitted garment production process is left unexplained. It isn't an overstatement to say that knitting according to the instructions in Woolly Thoughts is foolproof.

The book includes conversion charts (metric equivalency chart, weight conversion chart and knitting needle conversion chart). A wealth of basic knitting instructions(Cast-On/Off, decrease/increase etc.) are included, as well as many suggestions of how to put together patchwork modules into a well-fitting garment.

The witty drawings of Woolhelmina, the Helpful Sheep, accompany the knitting reader throughout the book, and if a sheep can master modular knitting, so can you.

This is indeed a very helpful book for beginners and even for advanced knitters who wish to expand their expertise and make their own designs. It is a small encyclopedia, chock-full with information and how-to features. I dare say that it includes not a single sentence of which you would not profit in your knitting career. For the price, it is a steal.
