Practical, comprehensive, and inspiring, this richly illustrated treasury presents invaluable workshops on beginner and expert techniques, as well as smart tips on the design process.

Vogue Knitting is one of he premiere knititng guides. This 25th Anniversary book is a collection of some of the best articles from their magazines. The articles focus on how-to guides on techniques in simple easy to understand directions and with great pictures. This book does NOT have patterns in it; I hope Vogue puts out a collection of their best patterns from the past 25 years. ( )

Vogue® Knitting International hit the newsstands in its current incarnation in 1982 with a focus on fashionable knitting. Over the years the magazine has featured designs from fashion’s biggest names in knitwear design; Adrienne Vittadini, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Twinkle, Michael Kors, Anna Sui and James Coviello to name a few. Through the years, what has kept Vogue® Knitting a magazine of substance, and a must have for knitters, has been the articles and workshops featured alongside the designs.

Now, for the first time, the best of these have been gathered into one volume, The Best of Vogue Knitting Magazine: 25 Years of Articles, Techniques and Expert Advice. The ultimate reference volume, within these pages is everything from beginning techniques to advice on the design process. Articles and essays were penned by the luminaries of the knitting world such as Elizabeth Zimmerman, Barbara G. Walker, Meg Swansen, Melanie Falick, Barbara Albright, and many more. Within these pages readers will even find advice on the business of raising sheep, for anyone who has ever dreamed of having their own yarn supply.

Articles, essays and workshops are intermixed, ensuring hours of fascinating reading dotted with new techniques and tips to try out. Each is marked in the upper left corner with the cover and issue in which it originally was published. Revisit old favourites and discover missed gems. If you are only going to purchase one knitting book this year, make it this one. Whether you want to read about the history of wartime knitting in America or explore Vogue®’s finishing school, this essential reference guide will more than pay for itself through the course of a knitter’s life.
