The Ultimate Knitting Book
'There is no such thing as the ultimate knitting book!' you might say, we say YES THERE IS! Vogue Knitting The Ultimate Knitting Book is exactly what it says on the cover!
Or you might be one of those that will swear to one essential book as their techniques guide, and we say THIS IS THE ONE! The Ultimate Knitting Book for all skill levels. From beginners who want to learn the very basics to seasoned knitters looking for a refresher on a complex technique, Vogue® Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book is a must-have bible; a truly comprehensive guide that provides a masterly understanding of every stage of the craft.
The best-selling Vogue® Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book was first published in 1989 and instantly became a trusted resource for knitters around the world. Now, a brand new, fully updated edition is released – the first since 2002.
The book covers all of the exciting advances in the craft from the past 15 years and contains 72 additional pages and more than 1600 photographs and hand-drawn step-by-step illustrations. There are instructions for new essentials such as brioche, entrelac, mosaic knitting and double knitting and comprehensive, expanded chapters on lace and cabling.
The design and construction chapters, which formerly only covered sweaters, now include dozens of options for hats, mittens, socks, gloves and more than 25 shawl shapes. Knitters will also find extensive information about tools, correcting errors, finishing, embellishing and garment care.

“Loaded with clear ‘how-to’ illustrations and explanatory photos, this book is packed with information on any knitting question you might have. I was fortunate enough to have been part of the original 1989 edition and have worn out my copy, so I can’t wait to get this revised and updated version.” — NANCY MARCHANT
“This book does for knitters what a book on delicious ingredients does for aspiring cooks. As I perused the pages, my mind danced with inspiration for future garments.” — KAFFE FASSETT
