350+ Knit­ting Tips, Tech­niques, and Trade Se­crets

Creative Knitting - - BOOK REVIEWS -

By Betty Barn­den (St. Martin’s Press, 160 pages, $22.99)

Bri­tish de­signer Betty Barn­den of­fers a potpourri of knit­ting tips in her up­dated edition of 350+ Knit­ting Tips, Tech­niques, and Trade Se­crets. Be­gin­ning and in­ter­me­di­ate knit­ters will pick up ideas on how to adapt pat­terns, read in­struc­tions, im­prove on fin­ish­ing tech­niques (both dur­ing and after the ac­tual knit­ting), learn a bit about hand dye­ing and more. Side­bars draw the reader’s at­ten­tion to ways to cor­rect (“Fix It”) and vary (“Try It”) knit­ting, while clear, close-up pho­tos demon­strate many of the how-tos. This is not an in-depth tech­nique man­ual, but rather a sam­pling of tips that will make new knit­ters want to learn more.
