  1. I think this would be a great book to not only learn new stitches in knitting but also for total newbies. Pictures and tutorials…..perfect!

  2. I really need to order this!! I am trying to get better at knitting and this would be a great tool!!

  3. This looks like a great book. I already have a 1960’s Vogue Dictionary and this would make an additional resource for possibly more modern stiches !!!

  4. I really like that you included some pictures of some of the stitches in this book. It helps a lot to know that the book gives clear instructions for the patterns included.

  5. I think this would be extremely invaluable for me. I’m just learning to knit and looking forward to getting much better!

  6. Thanks for this review. I have been wanting to learn to knit. I might just get this and try to teach myself.
