    The Principles of Knitting

    Methods and Techniques of Hand Knitting — Completely Revised & Updated

    The Principles of Knitting is one of the most comprehensive knitting books you'll ever find. Some knitting books show you one or two methods to do a basic stitch like an increase. June shows you a dozen different methods, each particularly suited to different projects and different knitters' needs. For every stitch, every material, every design, June has tested the various techniques and brings you the very best information, informed by decades of experience and thousands of hours of practice.

    The 2011 revision has been TOTALLY rewritten -- new instruction, new illustrations, new information. While the basics of knitting have not changed much, June's techniques for teaching have evolved over the last 25 years, and she's eager to share them with the world. In addition, there's updated information about Materials, some improved instructions for tricky techniques like intarsia and double-knitting, an easier-to-follow organization of the book, and a gorgeous new design. 704 pages, Hardcover, Simon & Schuster

      Comments about The Principles of Knitting:

      This book is fantastic! I use it to look up new stitches that I am using for the first time, and to clarify instructions. I also use it to look up alternative approaches to things such as binding off or casting on. I refer to it multiple times while working on a project. I love it!
