    This book describes the making of attractive machine-knit garments and accessories and highlights particular techniques and stitches with which the machine knitter needs to become familiar.

    The chapters describe how to make such popular items as socks, hats, gloves, skirts, and sweaters. The history of each garment and the development of knitting methods for it are discussed briefly; then the reader learns the necessary stitch types and associated techniques, with the help of numerous line drawings and photographs. There are patterns for 14 garments in all, with full explanatory notes for each.

    Tuck stitch, lace knitting, "ethnic" and color knitting, and fiber art are given individual chapters. A section on the charting device covers all kinds of charters currently available. Original stitch patterns are included for machine knitters to use for themselves.

    The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, even by a beginner. Yet suggestions for alternative methods of finishing items as well as the historical context will interest dedicated machine knitters as well.
