From the Back Cover
There are lots of stylish knitting patterns out there, but sometimes you want to do your own thing. Maybe you've found a yarn that would make a beautiful hat, and all you need are basic directions for shaping. Or maybe you've had your eye on a cute sweater in a store window and know that you can make a better version yourself--if you could only figure out the measurements. This handy guide demystifies all that knitting math and shows you how to knit custom-fitted, one-of-a-kind fashions that express your style. Master patterns for hats, sweaters, scarves, shawls, bags, mittens, vests, and socks lay out the basic construction for each item in a range of sizes; you choose the yarn and decide which modifications and customizations you want to make.
Precise master patterns show you all the steps involved in constructing handknits Master patterns give instructions for multiple sizes and gauges A number of shaping, edgings, and stitch patterns accompany each master pattern Helpful tips provide additional guidance Tables take the work out of knitting math Step-by-step instructions accompany each photo Color photos, illustrations, and diagrams demonstrate important concepts

OK. Other than that, this book is amazing. If you have a pattern idea in your head, know your what size you are making it and the gauge of your yarn, you can knit virtually anything with this book. I consider myself a fairly experienced knitter and I have a huge library of knitting books, yet this is the ONLY one I ever use on a consistent basis. It has a tutorial section in the beginning that is a good Knitting 101, and everything is explained very well. Lots of useful pictures, good glossary... this book has it all.
Teach Yourself Visually also has another knitting book entitled "Knitting". I bought this by mistake once. Don't waste your money on that one. The Knitting Design book has everything you need from the Knitting book, plus so much more. I love this book. I would recommend it to anyone that knits, novice or advanced.
