If you are a machine knitter, this book is a real prize which is worth tracking down, I hope it gets reprinted some day. It is a very cogent book about how to create all sorts of different kinds of knitted fabrics with a knitting machine. It is not for beginners.
What is really good about this book is that for each fabric type or example, she has a chart of how to set all the different carriage levers, cams, and control buttons, for each of the four major different families of knitting machines (Passap, Superba, Brother/Knitking, and Singer/Studio/Silver Reed; which cover most of the knitting machine market). Because there is no detailed information given by Amazon about the table of contents (as I write this), here are the chapters:
I - The Reference Chapters
1. How to Use the Material in This Book
2. The Basics
3. The Mechanics of Punchcard Knitting
4. Jacquard Punchcards
5. Accessories (yarn changers, etc.)
II - The Fabrics
1. Jacquard Fabrics
3. Ripple Fabrics
4. Blister Jacquard
5. Double Fabrics
6. Knit-weave Fabrics
8. Pile Fabrics
10. Short Rows
11. Inlay Fabrics
13. Principles of Racking
Every single fabric is illustrated with at least one photo, and charts, diagrams, special cast-ons, etc. are included where appropriate. For example, she has tables of what rate to decrease or increase in order to get certain angles or polygons (e.g. for doilys, shawls, blankets).
This book is a great complement to Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters. If you are beginner, start with the beginner chapters of Hand-Manipulated Stitches, including the cam explanations. Then switch to Part I of this book. Next, start learning to make the fabric types that interest you, how to set the cams, levers, and buttons on your own knitting machine using this book. Then continue using both books together for whatever advanced techniques interest you.
