Praise For…


“In this treasure trove of knowledge gleaned from a lifetime of knitting, Radcliffe has dispensed with the usual “how-to” reference book and written a “why-to” guide instead. Brimming with sage advice, intriguing tips and tricks, and thoughtful considerations of every aspect of knitting, this book is a must-have for knitters of all levels who want to understand how to alter, control, and personalize their work… The book is chockfull of useful photographs and diagrams, and its clarity, detail, scope, and companionable tone make it an extraordinary reference and a delicious read.”—Publishers Weekly

This book explains the why behind the how to of knitting. Imagine if the tiny little bit of information at the beginning of a knitting pattern was blown up into an almost 300-page reference book; that begins to explain The Knowledgeable Knitter.—Knitty.com
