Circular Knitting Workshop is the perfect book for you if you want to learn to knit in the round, or improve existing skills.This method of knitting is becoming increasingly popular and has many benefits over straight knitting, but to the newcomer it can seem a little intimidating.
However Margaret Radcliffe's excellent book will painlessly help you to master this useful technique, she covers every aspect of circular knitting with both circular needles and double pointed ones, includes mini projects for you to try out your new found skills, shows you how to convert flat patterns to circular ones, how to follow charts and much more.
It is altogether a super book for helping you to develop and improve your knitting skills.
"I've been knitting in the round for donkey's years and bought this book to try to expand my knowledge. Wow it's good! Don't be intimidated by it's enormous size, it's very well designed and written in a friendly accessible manner. There's something in it for everyone and rather than devote whole sections to patterns (which I never knit) it has basic patterns which can be adapted. It's very good for finding tips and ideas to improve your knitting and for working out solutions to those niggling little problems like unwanted laddering. It's now on my 'very useful' shelf!
""I bought the Circular Knitting Workshop purely so I could learn how to do circular
knitting. I think of myself as an advanced beginner, but now I'm well on
my way to becoming an intermediate knitter thanks to this gem of a
book! Beautifully but simply laid out with great tips, loads of pictures
to help guide you and plenty of advice for newer knitters. PLEASE NOTE:
The patterns in the book are mini so you can get the basics, but they
certainly help you get on to full size projects, as I have now completed
my first pair of socks!
A fantastic book, well worth the humble price and indispensable for the budding knitter. "
"I would recommend this book to new users and experienced knitters alike. It is clear, concise and very user friendly. I wanted new techniques clearly explained and this book delivers. "
"What a Fabulous Book! If I could possibly change anything about it? I would prefer a spiral binding, because I like my books to lie flat when I am knitting from instructions therein. Other than that? This book is perfect for explaining every aspect of knitting with both Circular and sets of Double Pointed Needles (DPN'S)"
