About the Author
Elizabeth Zimmermann is the author of several knitting books, including Knitting without Tears, Knitter's Alamanc, Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop, Knitting Around, The Opinionated Knitter, and Knit One Knit All. Additionally, she instructs knitters in the Knitting Glossary DVD, Knitting Around DVD, and Knitting Workshop DVD. Elizabeth Zimmermann is known for her innovative techniques and sweater construction, including her percentage system for sweater design. Her writing style and humor have helped many knitters gain the confidence to design their own garments and free themselves from the limitations of stitch by stitch knitting patterns. Her designs are as well-loved as her instruction. The Baby Surprise Jacket is one of the most popular sweater patterns for babies; all of her designs feature construction that delights knitters and allows them to amend their garments to their own tastes.

Happy knitting and a wonderful, fulfilling life to you all,
As a returning knitter looking for a deeper understanding, I enjoyed the step by step instructions and the explanation if something didn't go just right. It is my opinion that the Knitting Workshop book was to be accompany with the video (dvd). Since learning her method, I have been able to help others learn to knit. Just get a size 8 circular needle, cast on 72 stitches and called me when that part is completed. I would recommend this book and video to anyone with an open mind and patience to learning the conventional way.
