This is NOT a "definitive course" in knitting. I did not use this book to learn how to knit-I bought it for its stitch libraries and these have not disappointed

This is NOT a "definitive course" in knitting. It is a single DVD with a photocopied "manual" of about 3 folded pages slipped inside the DVD cover. The presentation is unforgivably elementary. The contents cover only 10-12 of the most basic topics. The first 6-8 minutes after the introduction is a guide to how to use your video remote. I did not use this book to learn how to knit-I bought it for its stitch libraries and these have not disappointed. There are pages and pages of stitch patterns from the very basic to the more difficult that are easy to read and have great variety. I have incorporated several of these stitch patterns into new designs.

Overall, this is a good and easy to follow reference book with the bonus of some beautiful knitted items of increasing difficulty to make as you read through the book. There have been some accusations that Bliss's instructions can be difficult to understand and hard to follow but I have never found that to be the case. Her designs are always good looking while being fairly simple and her instructions start with the basics and build on those. In this book she starts, as usual, with simple stitches and builds to some complicated patterns, leading you step by step. She gives variations on patterns and a rather extensive dictionary of stitches and patterns that I particularly find useful. This book has good value as an overall knitting reference book.

I was recommended this book by a woman who taught me how to knit in a knitting group that met only once. After buying the book, I was able to continue teaching myself. I complement it by using the web which has amazing resources nowadays (how-to videos, free patterns, blogs...). The DB book is a good one to own bc it's nice, with great pictures, nice thin format, hard cover,stays open at the page and it has a very complete references for many techniques you can use while knitting. It's a great reference. Each workshop has a pattern for practicing. I made the 1st one: a simple sweater for my son and it came out great. It's one thing I've noticed when compared with other patterns I have used, is that the ones from DB use very nice yarn and you end up with a refined professional looking garment : it's fine knitting, usually size 6 needles. I really enjoy owning this book.

This is NOT a "definitive course" in knitting. It is a single DVD with a photocopied "manual" of about 3 folded pages slipped inside the DVD cover. The presentation is unforgivably elementary. The contents cover only 10-12 of the most basic topics. The first 6-8 minutes after the introduction is a guide to how to use your video remote. Each button is explained with about a second between each explanation for us to absorb this groundbreaking information. The "skin" of the presentation template is attractive showing interesting yarns and colors. Clearly a purchased skin given the divergence from the actual video portion. The actual video portion was filmed against a white screen and is very elementary. My middle school child has produced better product than this. Do not waste you money on this one.

I did not use this book to learn how to knit--I bought it for its stitch libraries and these have not disappointed. There are pages and pages of stitch patterns from the very basic to the more difficult that are easy to read and have great variety. I have incorporated several of these stitch patterns into new designs. My brother is in the navy, so I created a fun scarf pattern using the "Anchor" stitch, and it turned out great. However, I would not recommend this book for someone who has never held a pair of knitting needles and has no idea how to knit: the instructions are brief and the diagrams are not very helpful. But if you know your basic stitches and want to transition to something a litle more complicated than garter stitch scarves, this is a great help!

A nice book filled to the brim with info. and tips on how to handle knitting problems. I like to keep it close to my machine in case I need a quick answer on a technique.

I have always wanted to learn how to knit. This book is phenomenal! It explains each stitch in detail so thoroughly, that I was knitting cables within the first week! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to knit!
Excellent graphics and instructions. also wonderful patterns to knit.
