Circular Knitting Workshop by Margaret Radcliffe
We often hear our customers say they are scared of circular knitting. We love it and this book will give you the confidence to try it, if you need a quick answer to a specific problem or to help you convert patterns from knitted flat to in the round. This book offers a complete course in knitting in the round and knitters of all levels and interests will find "Circular Knitting Workshop" to be just what they need.
More knitters than ever are using circular needles and enjoying the convenience, ease, and efficiency of knitting in the round. "Circular Knitting Workshop" teaches every aspect of circular knitting, and it empowers knitters of all levels to discover the satisfaction of knitting in the round. Circular knitting has many benefits, including making it easier to follow charts (with the right-side of the work always facing the knitter), eliminating the need for seams and allowing you to try on your garment while you are knitting it to ensure a great fit. Margaret Radcliffe, author of "The Knitting Answer Book", is a master teacher. She presents Fair Isle, twined, helix, tubular, and other classic techniques in detailed step-by-step photographic sequences. Thirty-five demonstration projects let readers try out each new technique on a mini-version of a sock, hat, bag, mitten, sweater, or vest before applying it to a larger project.
