Description

Now, in one extraordinary book, have at your fingertips more than 120 ways to cast on and more than 80 ways to bind off. This beautifully organized treasure is ideal for all skill levels. A terrific value! Find each technique presented with step-by-step written instructions, clear how-to-illustrations, and a photo of the finished edge. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of each method, including suggestions for when to use it. Discover workhorse and specialty cast ons and bind offs for colorwork, cuffs, ruffles, fringe, lace buttonholes and more. "The beauty of this book, though, is the fact that, like so many other things with knitting, there's so much more. There are dozens of different methods. In fact, according to Cap Sease, the brilliant mind behind this collection, there are 211 of them. I'm betting that's approximately 200 more cast on/bind off methods than you were aware of. Maybe you looked at this book when it first came out in hardcover and thought, "That looks really interesting, but..." before putting it down. Hardcover books can be expensive, after all, and heavy to lug about in a knitting bag. Which is why you NEED to know that Cast On, Bind Off is now available in paperback". --Knitting Scholar, May 2014… (more)
