Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

The Principles of Knitting is a truly intelligent knitting book that may define the craft for generations to come. It contains clear, complete, accurate coverage of construction methods, techniques, and helpful hints - not only the author's personal favorites, but many others as well. Unlike the all-too-familiar sort of knitting instructor who insists on only one "right" way, Ms. Hiatt presents the alternative ways too. She also gives some of her own innovations in both terminology and methodology, which make good sense, and can improve any readers skills in creative knitting. She discusses when, how, and why one might choose any particular technique above another, and the purpose of each operation, as well as various ways of solving common problems.

From Library Journal:

This is a comprehensive handbook for the knitter who wants to know the "whys" as well as the "hows" of hand-knitted fabric construction. Included are chapters on stitch formation, fabric construction, pattern design, project planning, and decorative work (e.g., multi-color knitting, inlay, and needlework embellishment). Superior organization, layout, indexing, and the numerous illustrations add to the value of this work as a basic knitting reference, but the beginning knitter may be intimidated by the sheer bulk of material presented--including, for example, 33 different methods for casting on stitches. A less intimidating introduction to the craft is Maggie Righetti's Knitting in Plain English ( LJ 3/15/86). Highly recommended for libraries collecting in this area.
