Comments to eBook Big Needle Knitting

This book has awesome photography, and great ideas for afghans, but I would never make any of the shawls, or adult sweaters in the book. They are bulky and not flattering even on their cute models. I debated if I should return the book since there were only a few patterns in it that I would make, but the base patterns of the sweaters and shawls would make neat blankets and scarves, so I decided to keep it. It does also have cute baby clothes in it.

Nice patterns and variety.

Great for big projects!

I saw a friend's copy of this book and thought it would be ideal when I need patterns for "prayer shawls," which a group in my church are knitting. Because of the use of big needles, projects will be completed very quickly, and the patterns are very attractive. I expect to get a great deal of use out of the book.

no good patterns. nothing i would wear. everything looks outdated & hokey.
don't waste your money on this one.
Not-the-Same
I’ve got to say it: I LOVE big needles! With bulky yarn, projects go fast. This book shows that this book has patterns at 4 levels on page 166, but the patterns in this book only have the first 3 levels: ‘Beginner’, ‘Easy’, and ‘Intermediate’. Therefore, is a buyer is looking for ‘Experiences’-level patterns, there are none.

For my taste, there could be more form-fitting shoulder patterns. Many of these have armholes that are too big, not 80s-like, but still too big for me.

This 2005, soft-cover book has 46 patterns on 176 semi-glossy pages, most of which have nice color photos of each finished HK item. Other graphics include pattern pieces to show what the knitted fabric pieces will look like pre-assembly. Many of these patterns use bright, variegated and solid, mostly brightly-colored, bulky yarn, so there is no need for fancy ribbing or cabling. This is a plus for fast, easy knitting.

The editor of this book is Bobbie Matela.

The publisher is House of White Birches, Berne, IN.

There are 2 main pre-Pattern sections: ‘Welcome’ (the ‘Introduction’) and ‘Contents’

There are 46 Patterns in this book, ranging from ‘Beginner to ‘Intermediate’. (Buy the book to see the Patterns.)

Following these, there are 5 post-Pattern sections:
a. ‘General Information’
b. ‘Knitting Essentials’
c. ‘Crochet Basics’
d. ‘Conversion Charts & Yarn Weight System’
e. ‘Special Thanks’

In sum, this is what I found by carefully examining this book:
1. There are ‘Skills-Levels’ given for the patterns: ‘Beginner’, ‘Easy’, and ‘Intermediate’. (There are none for ‘Experienced’ knitters.)
2. Unfortunately, there is no ‘Bibliography’ section. This section could include great books, covering a full range of ‘Techniques’. Two great sources for ‘Techniques’ are: “Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book” and “Knitter’s Handbook” by Montse Stanley, and if these 2 books were included, there would be no need for a ‘Techniques’ section.
3. There is no substantial ‘Techniques’ section (see above), which would need to cover all 3 Skills-Levels in this book. However, pages 165-174 cover some basic ‘Techniques’.
4. Unfortunately, there isn’t a ‘Topic/ Subject Index’.
5. There is a good ‘Contents’ section.
6. There is an ‘Introduction/ ‘Welcome’ section.

Knitters need to have all of the tools at their disposal when they want to knit an item from a book. The book that they use, however, should provide them with these tools.

(Note also that, like all published patterns/ books, the buyer should run an online search for the ‘Errata’ of the pattern/ book, download it, print it out, and place it inside of the pattern/ book, so that when the buyer wants to knit something, all of the pattern corrections will have been made. Note also that there may be more ‘Errata’ versions from earlier ones that you had originally accessed, so run a second online search if you have already done this and want to check for a later version.)

I bought this book a couple of years ago before I learned how to cable knit, and I was excited to start working on the cable patterned sweaters in the book until I saw how the instructions were presented. Instead of providing stitch by stitch instructions as other cable patterns I have successfully knitted projects from, the patterns in this book use charts which are completely lacking in instruction. If some people can knit from a chart, great, but I have no idea how to interpret them and I am pretty disgusted with the author of the patterns taking such lazy shortcuts. Most of the patterns in this book are completely useless to me now.
Mot the best book in my collection for sure. Patterns are out of date and ugly in my view.

Ended up in the thrift box.
