Details

The Knitter’s Companion Deluxe Edition with DVD.  Our absolute favorite (in fact the only one we recommend) go-to knitting reference.  Now with two bonus instructional DVDs, The Knitter’s Companion Deluxe Edition is every knitter’s perfect reference guide!” - Foryarnssake.com
 
“As essential to any knitter’s traveling kit as needles and yarn. The two DVDs are so brilliant.” – Knitty.com
 
"Small enough to stow in your bag, [this] compact spiral-bound guide offers on-the-spot answers to all of your stitching questions." — Family Circle’s Easy Knitting
 
"The best of the latest crop...has the basics on casting on, casting off, seaming and things...you need to know." — The News & Observer

"It's a time-tested manual for the nervous newbie...The Knitter's Companion is a good all-around book for someone who's started out."--CanadianLiving.com

"This deluxe edition's suggested retail price is $24.95, which is really a bargain when you consider that you're getting both the book and all that video instruction...Even for those who have some knitting experience, the book is a great reference for some of those things you might not always remember how to do and the videos are kind of fun to watch or at least listen to as you go about other things.  You might just learn something or be inspired to try a technique you hadn't considered before." --About.com

"Interweave Press has a good thing going with the “Companion” series of fiber crafts books (The Crocheter’s Companion). This edition improves further on the 2006 version by adding two instructional DVDs featuring techniques highlighted in the book. This is still an excellent ready reference for a variety of knitting techniques, including cast-ons, bind-offs, finishing, and other basics. The illustrations are as helpful as ever, but the demonstrations on the DVDs show knitters exactly what they should be doing. Every knitting collection needs a reference; this one is affordable and accessible." --Library Journal

Excellent Review by Diana
Rating

The Knitter's Companion is an excellent addition to my knitting library...the spiral book style is so convenient, I don't know why more publishers of how-to books don't use it. It is well written and the illustrations are clear and understandable.

The Knitters Companion book and cd Review by Becky McPIke

I love this set. I have the book by my knitting chair, and upstairs on my computer is the cd. Sometimes a book just doesnt show clearly what you need to do...the cd fits the need. I cant tell you how helpful it is from casting on, to wrap and turn, to making a nice tassel...if you think you know something...review it and you might find a better and neater way of making your project. This is well worth the money for any skill level you might be.
