NEW IN PAPERBACK Knitting has always been a popular needlecraft - simple to learn, incredibly versatile as well as being a great way to reduce stress.

Knitting is enjoying a new popularity among the younger market and new knitters are seeking out simple, stylish and contemporary designs for jumpers and sweaters. Big Knitting is aimed at all knitters.

advanced from Big Knitting: Quick and Easy Designs. Loose-fit Turtleneck. from Big Knitting: Quick and Easy Designs. Batwing Sleeve Sweater. 2. Round-neck Tank Top.

Introduces nineteen innovative designs for stylish wraps, pullovers, cardigans, and jackets, all of which use bulky yarns and large needles to create, along with sections on fundamental knitting and finishing techniques and tips on customizing a pattern for fit and fashion. Original.
As some of the other reviewers have mentioned, there is a bit of repetition among the patterns and there are a few areas that could be spelled out more clearly but this is one of the lesser priced books I've found for chunky projects (my favorite).

If you are advanced enough to be able to amend patterns, you might find you enjoy playing with these patterns. I prefer to knit in the round so I modified the patterns to fit my needs.

No, this book is not perfect but it is reasonably priced and I had a good experience with it.
What a great book for chunky and bulky yarn ! Has great easy patterns, great book!

Highly reccomend it!
This book has many projects that can be finished quickly and with simple directions. The photos are very good. Comtemporary styles are included. I have finished a couple of projects already.
This book is fine if you are looking for very similar patterns. All of the patterns are usuable and easy to follow, but none are very exciting. The book definitely gets kudos for having easy and fast to knit patterns, but not many are what I would call very attractive. Perhaps I was expecting too much.
I probable will not make much from this book, too many sweaters and that is not my thing, but if it is yours, you will like this book
This book of knitting patterns for big wool is well set out and contains projects that will be quick and easy to make.

The instructions are clear, with close up photographs that show exactly how the garment should look when finished. I can't wait to get started on my first Big Knitting project!
I’ve got to say it: I LOVE big needles! With chunky yarn, projects go fast. This book stresses skills-building patterns, beginning with those who knit at a ‘Very Easy’ level, so that beginners aren’t driven away. The second skills level is ‘Easy’, and the highest level is ‘Medium’.

For my taste, there could be more form-fitting shoulder patterns. Many of these have armholes that are too big, not 80s-like, but still too big for me.

This 2005, soft-cover book has 19 patterns on 96 semi-glossy pages, half of which have nice color photos of each finished HK item. Other graphics include pattern pieces to show what the knitted fabric pieces will look like pre-assembly. These patterns use bright, variegated and solid, mostly brightly-colored, chunky yarn, so there is no need for fancy ribbing or cabling. This is a plus for fast, easy knitting.

The author of this book is Sophie Britten, a knitting teacher and knitwear designer.

The publisher is Martingale & Company, Woodinville, WA.

There are 4 main pre-Project sections: ‘Contents’, ‘Introduction’, ‘Getting Started’, and ‘How to Knit’. (There are 7 more related sections (i.e. basic techniques) that relate to and follow the ‘How to Knit’ section. Buy the book to see these.)

There are 19 Projects/ Patterns in this book, ranging from ‘Very Easy’ to ‘Medium’. (Buy the book to see the 21 patterns.):

In sum, this is what I found by carefully examining this book:
1. There are ‘Skills-Levels’ given for the patterns: ‘Very Easy’, ‘Easy’, and ‘Medium’.
2. Unfortunately, there is no ‘Bibliography’ section. This section could include great books, covering a full range of ‘Techniques’. Two great sources for ‘Techniques’ are: “Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book” and “Knitter’s Handbook” by Montse Stanley, and if these 2 books were included, there would be no need for a ‘Techniques’ section.
3. There is no substantial ‘Techniques’ section (see above), which would need to cover all 3 Skills-Levels in this book. However, pages 11-21 cover some basic ‘Techniques’.
4. There is a ‘Topic/ Subject Index’.
5. There is a good ‘Contents’ section.
6. There is an ‘Introduction’.

Knitters need to have all of the tools at their disposal when they want to knit an item from a book. The book that they use, however, should provide them with these tools.

(Note also that, like all published patterns/ books, the buyer should run an online search for the ‘Errata’ of the pattern/ book, download it, print it out, and place it inside of the pattern/ book, so that when the buyer wants to knit something, all of the pattern corrections will have been made. Note also that there may be more ‘Errata’ versions from earlier ones that you had originally accessed, so run a second online search if you have already done this and want to check for a later version.)
I was so excited to get this book and bought up all the yarn for the projects. I got stuck on the cardigan took it to my knitting teacher we both tired 2 times and the pattern just wasn't right. Big bummer. I don't want ro invest the time for the other patterns!
