Step-by-step photos, diagrams and straightforward instructions illustrate each technique, and three full knitting patterns encourage you to put your skills into practice.

Press Reviews

Jo Shaw’s new book has tips for making the entire knitting process neater, from making a swatch and casting on to how you knit the piece, and finally
the sewing up and blocking. All the techniques are explained in detail and also demonstrated in clear photos. This is a great book for intermediate knitters who want to take their work to the next level but has plenty of tips for the more experienced too!
