Reviews

Interweave Press has a good thing going with the CompanionA series of fiber crafts books (The Crocheter's Companion ). This edition improves further on the 2006 version by adding two instructional DVDs featuring techniques highlighted in the book. This is still an excellent ready reference for a variety of knitting techniques, including cast-ons, bind-offs, finishing, and other basics. The illustrations are as helpful as ever, but the demonstrations on the DVDs show knitters exactly what they should be doing. Every knitting collection needs a reference; this one is affordable and accessible.-Library Journal USA
