The DK knitting bible: everything you need in one hefty volume
I love this book. A couple of week’s ago a lovely colleague of mine left this on my desk and what a treat it was.
Page upon page of beautifully shot pictures, and all the techniques you could possibly wish for with – from lace to cable, colour work and fair isle.
There’s a really great projects sections, and then a whole section on various stitch patterns. A lot of the patterns use Rowan wool.
This book is £25 and worth every penny. I don’t think you’d need another book, it seems to cover off your every knitting need.
