|The Knitting Book (2011) by Frederica Patmore and Vikki Haffenden|
It also has a huge stitch gallery.
I can't say enough good things about this book. It is great for a beginner, but also good for someone who's a little more advanced. This book is huge and it covers so much. I think this is going to be my go to book for a long time. It covers cables, entrelac, fair isle, etc.
This book is like a text book but does not read like one I promise.
My first swap partner dairymaid is who convinced me to get this book, even though she might not know it.
Have you found any really good books for crafting?
