I received a complementary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Knitting for Intermediate Knitters bills itself as a “complete guide,” but this is a bit of an overstatement. It’s more like an expanded glossary. It has a few step-by-step instructions and some nice patterns, but mostly it provides definitions and hints for using various knitting tools and techniques.
The conversational tone of the book is inviting and makes it a quick and easy read. A beginning knitter can certainly learn a few things from reading it. When it comes to actual instruction, however, there really isn’t much of it. The book relies primarily on references to other sources, such as YouTube videos, for anything more advanced.
The pictures are beautiful, but the book lacks the detailed shots and techniques found in books like Vogue Knitting or The Knitting Answer Book.
This is a decent reference, but definitely not an “ultimate guide.” It is probably best for someone who has been away from knitting for a while and just wants a refresher.
