3.0 su 5 stelle A Compendium of Many Knitting Techniques, Some Useful and Some Arcane 24 aprile 2012
Di Fairbanks Reader - Bonnie Brody - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This is not your typical knitting book. It's opening sentence states that "This book will look at hand knitting as a way of constructing fabric and three dimensional shapes in a creative way, rather than following the conventional knitting pattern formula of describing flat, patterned shapes to be joined together by sewing." The book also explores how different types of yarn effect the drape of a pattern - how it hangs and how stretchy it is.

The book provides a history of knitting from pre-history until the present. It then proceeds to types of stitches and how they work. In this section, a multitude of stitches is provided along with samples, both written and charted. Modular and entrelac techniques are reviewed. Techniques of knitting comes next and the author encourages that knitting be done in a comfortable setting, emphasizing that there are a number of ways to knit and "there is no official way of knitting". Colour is a large section of the book "Working with colour opens up a whole world of more possibilities in knitting, both in creating patterns, geometric or free-form, and also in combining stitches and colours to get more subtle or intense effects." Stripes, zigzags, curves, Fair Isle knitting, and mixed methods are only some of the types of coloured knitting covered. There is a nice section on colour theory and a good section on dying yarn. The next section deals with the materials that make up yarn. These include animal fibres such as sheep, goat, camelids and silk. Plant fibers include cotton, linen, hemp, ramie and bamboo. There are also man-made fibers. The next section covers joining, finishing, edges and extras. It offers various techniques for knitting such as different types of cast-ons, ways to lengthen materials, joining techniques, buttonholes and double knitting. The last section of the book concludes with patterns. Most of them are modular and multi-coloured.

While the book includes a lot of information, I'm not sure what its intent is. It seems to be all over the place and is not really a pattern book and not really a colour book and not really an information book. It is a little bit of each of these things. I think, based on the title, that it should have focused more on design which is not really included much at all. It is a compendium of a lot of things, many useful and others somewhat arcane.

There are, however, many things that I would use in this book and the explanations are rather good. For instance, the section on cast-ons is excellent as is the section on colour theory. The book is written in the UK by Alison Ellen and perhaps the focus on knitting there is different than it is in the United States. I would use this book to look up and clarify things that are not covered as well in other books. The patterns are okay but not that special, unless you like modular knitting or entrelac, neither of which I'm a great fan of.

I absolutely love Alison's designs and color choices. I will be using this book a lot for inspiration and for technical tips however I find the patterns and instructions very difficult to follow. I consider myself an advanced knitter and am in the final stages of one of her patterns but found I just needed to figure it out for myself. On Ravelry I found a non-native English speaker who felt her language skills were the problem in trying to knit the same jacket I am working on, so all in all I love this book but think it is more for an advanced knitter who can figure things out for him/herself

1.0 su 5 stelle Same contents and pictures from her previous book! 25 giugno 2012
Di Lexx - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
When I get a new book, I expect it to have new content, information not covered in my other books. I have a knitting book collection, one of the books including Allison's Hand Knitting New Directions book. I recently bought this book only to see the same content and pictures from her Hand Knitting book. This book is lacking so much just like her other book, with hardly any pattern swatches. There is one page with a variey of attractive swatches showing color and stitch variations going in different directions, but the rest of the pictures are sloppy samples in one color with the yarn tail still hanging from it! I was very disappointed in this book. While the author does write some good info in the book, its the same information from her previous book, even the chapters are the same, just worded a little differently. I get very little inspiration from this book, she could have put so much more into it. I would have really enjoyed a book filled with swatches in different color and stitch combinations going in various directions throughout the book to get my creative juices flowing and inspire me. This book definitely does not inspire! Authors really need to get creative and stop stealing people's money! If your gonna write a NEW book, put NEW content in it!

This explains knitting beyond patterns. It helps you make design decisions, focusing on how the finished product will function. I've not read the entire book to this point, but have found little I am not fascinated by.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent technical reference 2 maggio 2012
Di Kathleen Davis - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I started knooking (knitting with a crochet hook with a cord) last year and have been trying to find references on knit stitch construction that imparts technical knowledge usually lacking in almost all knitting books and patterns. This book delivers this information. Things I found most helpful:
*stitch construction explained with text, pictures and standardized diagrams
*how various stitch combinations work together to create various fabric types with interesting examples
*detailed explanation on the directional joining processes in modular knitting -the pictures clear up confusion on where to pick up stitches on previous modules
*clear text and illustrations on joining techniques
*technical information on yarns and how yarn construction can affect your knitting
*a great overview on the use of color with helpful examples
*a final bonus of some interesting mostly modular projects using techniques outlined in the book
If you are looking to understand knitting on a technical level and gain insight on knitting design then this is the book for you.
