Reference: offers guidelines on how to calculate yarn substitutions, how to read labels, a comparative US/European glossary of terms, needle information, and much more.

This is an indispensable handbook offering both beginners and professionals all the information needed to make the best choice for each project, in an easy to use and accessible format. Softcover; 176 pages; St. Martin's Griffin.
