 CAST ON BIND OFF

54 Step-by-Step Methods

by Leslie Ann Bestor

 

The pictures in this book are great, something I always find helpful in instructions. There is a close up as well as a perspective photo of each method, and the step by step photos are also very good. The accompanying written explanations are clear, and the 4 or 5 I've tried turned out to be just as pictured and easily accomplished. There is often a “getting it right” section which has additional tips and watch outs for the method described.

 

The book has a firm semi-flexible cover. It's a small book -at 6”x7”, has a sturdy wire binding, and has summary page pictures also – eg. all the stretchy cast ons are on a single page to make it easier to choose at a glance the right one for your project.

 

I've bought many how-to books over the years, this is the only one I keep on my beside-the-knitting-chair table for quick reference when I want to try something different on a charity hat or whatever. It's listed at $16.95, but can be found in various locations for about half of that. It is such a good value I wanted to write a review of it. I think you'll agree!
