professional-looking projects. This comprehensive reference gives you
the know-how you need to get gorgeous, polished results every
Dec 29, 2009I always turn to this book for cast-ons. It's also spiral-bound, which I think should be mandatory for all crafting books...
Jul 30, 2018Excellent Guidebook for knitting
Mar 15, 2019Good information, well arranged and illustrated. Many good tips and techniques. Tempted to purchase for personal library, but probably won't.
Dec 06, 2016I've checked this out from the library 3 times. It's clear that I need to buy my own copy.
Sep 23, 2011The most beautiful knit fabric will make an awful sweater if the finishing techniques are not right. There is so much information to help make that perfect project in this small book. Only 144 pages, but they are packed with information. The books starts with Nancie’s Finishing Secrets, 7 tips that only experience can teach.
Jul 15, 2015Just to be clear - this is a technical book about knitting, not how to kill your opponents using martial arts or Mortal Kombat.
Dec 19, 2011I've been knitting for over a decade, and only just bought this book a month ago. I keep finding it on the table next to my knitting spot, instead of on the bookshelf where it belongs! I pull it out to decide which increase or decrease to use, to remember which bind-off will look best on the thing I'm knitting, or to figure out what the edging will do before I put it on the sweater.
Nov 08, 2016I bought my copy for research in The Knitters' Guild of America's master handknitter program, and I've used it mightily! For a rather small book of techniques, this is one of the most complete--completely useful--books available on the subject. More than simply 'finishing,' these are essential elements from start to finish. Every one of the techniques are inherently useful in constructing handknits.
Oct 12, 2007I have always procrastinated on the finishing of my projects, at least in part because I wasn't sure what I was doing and often was not happy with the final result. This book has very clear instructions for finishing professional-looking projects. The illustrations and photos are extremely helpful, and the book includes much more than sewing seems. The spiral binding makes it stay open easily, and the hard cover helps it withstand the heavy usage. A must-have in anybody's knitting bag!
Aug 08, 2013Well I have been 'reading' this book for almost seven years. It is my go-to reference for those very important finishing techniques--the knitted item no matter how well knot can look awful if jot well-finished. (I have at points considered hiring out my finishing work since I do it so badly...).
Oct 18, 2007This is the finishing techniques book yarn store employees recommend to everyone. It is a good book, but I had already found my finishing bible by the time I came across it, and I haven't been able to adapt to its different style. But if you want to go by the book, this is the one you should have.
Apr 07, 2008I have been knitting for years. This is the book I couldn't knit without. It has clear, concise directions and pictures showing the process. Because I am left-handed the pictures are particularly helpful.
Feb 28, 2010This is one of my frequently used reference book on knitting technique. I can't remember how many times I read this book because I used it so many times. This book is a great addition to your knitting books library.
Jul 21, 2008A great resource with good illustrations and explanations. I would have liked all the illustrations to be photos rather than some of them being drawings, and I think it could have done with a few more, but it's still an excellent resource. The spiral bound /lay flat binding is particularly useful.
Jan 20, 2017This is a fantastic book that will improve your FOs dramatically. There are a lot of great tips and wonderful instruction on finishing. Finishing makes a HUGE difference.
Jun 26, 2011Another required item for Boot Camp. Another invaluable book for knitters.
Mar 20, 2013I brought this book to work with me so I could photocopy my favorite techniques. Then I realized I wanted to copy about 90% of the book! So I'm just going to buy it.
Jun 11, 2012A good reference book for the basics such as cast-ons, cast-offs, and seaming.
May 26, 2010A must have in your knitting library! Been using it a lot for my TKGA study.
