Book Re­views,

Creative Knitting - - CONTENTS -

By the ed­i­tors of Vogue Knit­ting mag­a­zine, (Sixth&Spring Books, 352 pages, $39.95) Vogue Knit­ting The Ul­ti­mate Knit­ting Book has been a ter­rific re­source for knit­ters for al­most three decades. Now it has been re­vised and up­dated and is big­ger and bet­ter than ever. Be­gin­ners will find all they need to know about the ba­sic stitches and cor­rect­ing er­rors, while ad­vanced knit­ters will wel­come ex­panded sec­tions on brioche, en­trelac, dou­ble knit­ting and mo­saic knit­ting. Bud­ding de­sign­ers will find chap­ters for de­sign­ing sweaters, shawls and ac­ces­sories. Text, close-up photos and ex­cel­lent illustrations are com­bined in a lay­out that makes it easy to skip to the in­for­ma­tion you need on each page. Cross­ref­er­ences at the bot­tom of the pages lead you to re­lated in­for­ma­tion. If you don’t have a good knit­ting ref­er­ence book, it’s time to get one!
