Discover the perfect beginning and ending for every knitting project! This one-of-a-kind reference guide presents more than 50 ways to cast on and bind off, creating edges that are tighter, looser, stretchier, or lacier — whatever your project needs. Detailed instructions for each technique are combined with step-by-step photography so that you’ll be sure not to miss a stitch. No matter what you’re knitting, Leslie Ann Bestor has the cast on and bind off that will give your project the perfect edge.
“Knitting teacher and fiber artist Bestor turns this deceptively simple topic into a fascinating read… This is a great reference for the knitter looking to customize her own projects, and is an ideal companion for anyone who dares to try her own hand at design.”
“In the era of YouTube, how useful is a print guide to knitting cast-ons and bind-offs? Very, especially if you’re designing your own knits, looking for alternate cast-ons or bind-offs to change an existing pattern, or trying to choose among a variety of options in a pattern. [Leslie Ann Bestor’s] collection is comprehensive and well organized, and the directions are easy to follow.”
“This spiral-bound book is a gem, chock-full of techniques to improve your knitting projects from start to finish. I love the organization of the book ...In addition to the handy spiral binding - so great when you’re trying to follow along - there are photos of every step of the techniques, plus photos of projects using the techniques. Paws up!" ― Austin American Statesman's knitting blog, Knittin' Kitten
“The very best knitting books are the ones that educate, inspire and open up new knitting worlds. As so it is with "Cast On, Bind Off," a terrific new reference book that walks knitters through more than 50 -- I'll repeat that, because it merits it -- more than 50 ways to start and end your projects. … And that, folks, is why every blessed one of us needs this book. Like, now. … I've seen a number of these techniques elsewhere, but never all of them together, and absolutely never in such a clear, easy-to-use format. This is a must for any knitter's library. You'll go back to it time and again, and you'll never again have a glorious project wrecked by the wrong technique. (Anyone who's ended up with a too-tight bind off on a sweater neck knows what I'm talking about.) Buy the book. Your knitting will thank you, and you'll thank Leslie Ann Bestor for writing "Cast On, Bind Off."” ―The Oregonian’s knitting blog, OregonLive.com
“Step-by-step instructions and accompanying close-up photographs are the perfect format for this go-to guide. You’ll be amazed at what you’ve been missing!”

This book was a disappointment. The instructions and the photos were only "OK". The only really good thing about the book was that it was spiral bound.
If you are looking for a great book on cast on and cast off techniques, I highly recommend "Cast On, Bind Off: 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting" by Cap Sease. It is a much more comprehensive and better written book with a wider array of techniques.
The small size is comfortable to use and remains in place when open.
