Cast On, Bind Off takes on the most difficult part of knitting, offering 120+ ways to cast on and 80+ ways to bind off. Each method is illustrated with clear drawings of the technique, and color photos of actual knitted examples. The author discusses the characteristics of each technique, and provides suggestions for the best uses. The techniques range from the old and traditional to modern innovations including Judy's Magic Cast On and Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off.

The book is very nicely designed for use as a reference. The pages are printed on sturdy paper that should hold up well to heavy use. The outer cover looks like a conventional book, but the coil binding inside allows the pages to lie flat for easy reference while knitting.
