Well-organized, beautiful, surprisingly improved update on what I thought was an unbeatable classic. I will be replacing the 2002 edition in my library with this one as soon as I can. ( )

Some useful and interesting sections on sweater sizing and customization, and a few neat tricks scattered throughout. This is hefty for a reference book, but it's not really useful for much else.

With input from more than 50 leading specialists, no other book covers the field so comprehensively. Need guidance on yarns, needles, tools, basic techniques, specialized applications, terminology? It’s in here—with lots more, from diagnostics to blocking to designs.
