Back By Popular Demand
Almost 9 years on from it's first edition and following ridiculous shenanigans regarding prices on ebay and Amazon - Finishing Techniques For Hand Knitters is once again in print!
Most patterns readily available to hand knitters give instructions on how to knit the item, but not necessarily how to finish it, but the techniques involved in finishing a garment successfully, from choosing the appropriate methods of casting off to adding in a zipper, take a bit of time to master and achieve instinctively. In awareness of this, this book provides practical advice and step-by-step instructions for every sort of finishing technique. The reader can thus build up a store of effective methods with which to personalize and add flair to their work, whether it's embellishing a child's hat or inserting the right size button holes for a chunky cardigan.
Finishing Techniques For Hand Knitters has step by step instructions for over 50 techniques and has an 'unmatched' variety of design ideas and includes a unique directory of edgings with close up photography capturing every stage of the techniques.
The book will be republished this month in the UK and in September in the US. ISBN: 9781903975848
