The spiral-bound and hardback format makes this book as functional as it is informative and instructional. The lay-flat binding allows for hands-free access and the sturdy hardcover ensures you'll be able to use it for years to come.
I use this more than any other pattern book. It has classic, basic patterns for sweaters, cardigans, mittens, socks, hats, and more. It has them in a wide range of sizes, and gauges. You could knit for the rest of your life with just this book!
My favorite thing about this book is that it allows me to start my project planning based on a yarn. ...You want to make a v-neck for yourself in that gorgeous, mohair yarn? Or a child's cardigan in the superwash yarn that's on sale? Just grab the yarn, and come home and knit. The size-variations and instructions are in here.
These patterns are classic and basic, and begging to be embellished with your own stitch patterns, colors, yarn textures. The only limit is your imagination!
Ann Budd, managing editor of Interweave Knits, learned to knit in 1968 in Switzerland, when all girls in the public school system were taught needlearts. After returning to the States, she continued to knit as a hobby while working toward a master's degree in geology. In 1989, Ann left geology to pursue her love of fibers and to begin working for Interweave Press—first for Handwoven magazine, then in the book department, and finally for Interweave Knits magazine, which has featured many of her projects and articles. In 2000, Ann was awarded the Master Knitter certificate from The Knitting Guild of America. Ann lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband and three sons, who accept—but do not share!—her passion for knitting.
