diagrams mis-titled
Just noticed that some of the diagrams detailing the short row sequences have been mis-titled - i.e. some described as "knit" show the purl version and vice-versa, otherwise great, easy to follow instructions. Review by Jill (Posted on 3/25/2018)
It seems I get excited about a book, buy it, browse through it, then stash it away and never look at it again. This is a book I'll refer to again and again. The book explains all the different short row techniques and how to decide which technique to use for your application. Then there are 2-3 patterns to use with each short row type. The instructions are clear and concise. There are several patterns I will actually use but even if I don't; the book is worthwhile for it's information on short rows.
