Its no wonder so many beginners (and even some whose skills are quite advanced) are intimidated by the bewildering code--or that so many yarn-shop owners grow frustrated by the amount of time they must spend deciphering patterns for the uninitiated.Enter Knitspeak, a knitters dictionary that disentangles the mysteries of pattern language and translates it into plain English, helping knitters to easily transition from confused to confident. Andrea Berman Prices essential guide--written in a friendly, reassuring tone and formatted for quick reference--begins with an overview of how knitting patterns are organized.

It then offers a comprehensive alphabetical listing of all the abbreviations, words, phrases, and symbols typically encountered in patterns.Knitspeaks many easy-to-understand drawings clarify basic and not-so-basic needle techniques, and a series of sidebars deals with issues ranging from keeping track of simultaneous shaping to substituting yarns and reading a yarn label.

The books appendix is filled with valuable tips, charts, and worksheets.
