Format: Paperback
This is my favorite English knitting stitches dictionary to date. The book starts off with clear concise descriptions of knitting basics which are actually very helpful. I like that they included sequential photos to illustrate some of the techniques.

The bulk of the book is the stitches dictionary and they are broken up into categories: Knit-purl, Crossed stitches and cables, Slipped stitches, Lacy stitches, Double stitches, Twisted stitches, Cast-off stitches, and Fancy stitches. A color guide assigned to each category helps you to find the section you are looking for quick and easily. The swatches of the stitches are bright and very clear. There is a written instructions for each stitch but best of all, at least in my opinion, each one is charted as well. You will LOVE this feature, especially if you want to try your hand at designing knitting patterns. Or if you want to take your knitting to the next level and learn how to read knitting charts. At the back of the book, there is a symbol key section.

All in all, this is a really handy book and definitely worth its price and spot on my "keeper" knitting bookshelf.

I fell in love with this book. Sat in a Mall for 5 hours trying out every stitch I could to make a pattern for a scarf from what is in this book. It is a wonderful collection of knowledge and info and a valuable resource for one to have and is clear, well worded and written and the photos are great examples of what the stitch will look like and it includes info for some stitches ie. not to use it for certain things since it can be this and that. I will treasure this book.

This book gives a good range of stitch possibilities and the instructions are easy to read. Any dedicated knitter would find this reference book a valuable addition to their knitting library, and possibly a source of inspiration.

I got this book in Sept 2010. I read a few previous reviews that said this book is great... Absolutely amazing would have been a better choice of words. I cannot believe all the different stitches there are. To me it is my main knitting book now and I assume will be forever. You can create your own patterns with this book. I have made a bunch of different swatches or dishclothes just to test them out, beautiful. Now I have been making scarves by some of the stitch patterns from the book. I haven`t boughten a knitting magazine since!!! I have only been knitting a year but have already made a sweater, still consider myself just easy level but this book is GREAT!

As I said in the title, my issues with this book may only reflect my own idiosyncratic needs/desires, but I was a little disappointed with it when I first received the book; I kept it, but I'm still not absolutely sure if I like it as I haven't tried any of the patterns yet and I feel I should at least try some before I ultimately decide to keep it or not. The reasons for my dissatisfaction are that the inside of the book is shot in full-colour, as it states, but the author only uses white yarn (except for about 5 pp when she uses b & w wool to show up slipped stitches). This is not a major flaw and really doesn't affect the quality of the stitches and patterns; this is just my own little 'bete noire'- I love colour and sometimes a different shade can change the look of a pattern, so for me, it would have been nice to have more variety. I believe the author most likely wanted to show off the stitches clearly, but it does add a somewhat monotonous tone to the book for me. Also, there is no section for ribs, which I would love to know more about. There are about 3 or 4 rib patterns scattered throughout the book, but I would have preferred to see a much larger sampling. In addition, the cables section is over 100 pp and in a 256p book that is an awful lot of cables, which consequently are not my favourite stitch. It is for these reasons, that I rate it lower than others.
Addendum:
Having tried some of the patterns since I wrote this first review, I have to make some changes and corrections- some positive, some not. I found out that ribbing is quite simple- just a combination of knit and purl stitches depending on the size of the rib, so that there isn't a need for a large section on ribs. My bad.
