    I m loath to give 5 stars to anything that doesn t move me to tears in a good way, like Middlemarch, so this is 4.5 rounded up because Ms Melville s so delightful in person and such a great teacher I m a 53 year old guy, so I m less likely to get excited about making some of the garments illustrated unless they were gifts , but if one worked one s way through the book one would learn an awful lot.I ve been knitting for over 4 years and still have much to learn, and there were new tips in thi I m loath to give 5 stars to anything that doesn t move me to tears in a good way, like Middlemarch, so this is 4.5 rounded up because Ms Melville s so delightful in person and such a great teacher I m a 53 year old guy, so I m less likely to get excited about making some of the garments illustrated unless they were gifts , but if one worked one s way through the book one would learn an awful lot.I ve been knitting for over 4 years and still have much to learn, and there were new tips in this book It s not terribly long, and the new tips stand out in stark contrast to the patterns, so I d suggest everyone at least skim through it to see what you might pick up, even if you know the basics and then some already Note 5 stars amazing, wonderful, 4 very good book, 3 decent read, 2 disappointing, 1 awful, just awful I m fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s

    I didn t check, but I hope there s a Purl Experience Book that is a companion to this very thorough, engaging, eye catching, colorful, useful practical introduction to knitting just knitting the knit stitch only The patterns range from scarves to men s sweaters, children s knits, and full length dresses, yet a beginning knitter could easily conquer them all Good starting point for would be knitters with no one to physically guide them through the process.

    This series of books by Sally Mellvile are the best knitting books I have read And I ve read a lot of them.Her interest and sense of enthusiasm about her subject comes through clearly While the photos are somewhat dated due to hairstyles most of the patterns are clothes that one can knit and wear today and in the future Most books with patterns contain at most two patterns I might knit sally s always has many and the techniques she teaches not only save you time how nice is it not to have This series of books by Sally Mellvile are the best knitting books I have read And I ve read a lot of them.Her interest and sense of enthusiasm about her subject comes through clearly While the photos are somewhat dated due to hairstyles most of the patterns are clothes that one can knit and wear today and in the future Most books with patterns contain at most two patterns I might knit sally s always has many and the techniques she teaches not only save you time how nice is it not to have to rip 12 rows out to fix a dropped stitch but allow you to adapt the pattern in any way you d like

    I love these patterns This book contains the Einstein Coat, which will be completed by me one of these days I actually had it almost done and realized my yarns didn t match, so completely frogged it 5 25 14 found a copy of this at Half Price Books, so will start in again on my Einstein Coat

    I ve had the book for years and frequently looked at the finished pieces with longing, but I still haven t been able to teach myself to knit But to be fair, I haven t really applied myself just yet Perhaps this year

  7. says:

    I love the clear instructional photographs for technique I don t so much love the designs, but there s still much to be learned from the book even if you don t knit any of the patterns Same as for the Purl Stitch.

    theI knit, theI go back to review this book to learn the exact way to do stitches and patterns and just general knitting ways If I had to start all over I might have gone through this book from the beginning to end instead of haphazardly looking up answers to my many questions

    An excellent book for the beginner knitter It has great photo instruction, and it s well written I made the Einstein coat early in my knitting career, and it got so many compliments plus it s really easy

  10. says:

    Love this book I love the simplicity and the style of it The book can sit on my shelf forgotten for years.then I decide it s time foe an Einstein and it comes out again I thumb through it and find all sorts of treasures that I had forgot about Her patterns are timeless and a joy to make
