From Library Journal
Domino knitting is a type of "modular knitting," with knitted squares and strips building on one another to form a larger piece-just as in the game dominoes are placed next to one another to create a larger whole. Fun, eminently portable, and requiring nothing more than a knowledge of the basic knit and purl stitches, this technique has been popularized in recent years by Horst Schultz, whose Patchwork Knitting first attracted Hmxbro to the craft. While inspirational, Schultz's book is not the best choice for neophytes. Knitters wishing to master this technique would be well advised to work through this little book instead. A Danish knitwear designer with an obvious knack for teaching, Hmxbro instructs through a series of colorful potholder projects. Teaching sessions are followed by a number of projects using the technique and include both garments and accessories for the home. Recommended for large public libraries and textile collections.

She demonstrates a construction technique to eliminate the need to sew all those squares together. You attach the new square you are casting on to the one finished. No seaming. This is a huge benefit to the knitter as most knitters love to knit and hate to sew.
All you need to know is how to knit, purl, and psso.
Well-illustrated, with instructions on joining pieces, patterns, and even a little section on I-cord borders.
Very nice little book!
What I like best about domino knitting is that you can take your knitting with you, easily, wherever you go. No huge projects to lug around, say, on an airplane, just a little square and 2 needles. Very neat.
Still, I like the book Woolly Thoughts better. That book gives more information and inspiration, plus lots of technical info. They really help you see the math of it all and encourage you to explore for yourself. I think that book will end up being more useful.
