A Knitter’s LibraryFebruary 26, 2008
In light of recent posts, I’ve decided to recommend knitting books. Some of the books I might actually own, some I have fondled in BookStores or Libraries and others I am simply coveting from a distance.
The first featured book is actually two selections, a book and a pamphlet which I feel no Knitter should be without.
Each of these offer practical information regarding the crucial elements of gauge in your projects. The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns provides you with a basic template for common knitted pieces such as hats, tams, mittens, gloves, sweaters, vests and socks. While The Knitter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements provides basic yarn yardage requirements for the same items. Each of these publications offer instructions and information for various sizes and gauges. Again, these are musts for any Knitter, Beginner to Experienced.
