Book Review Mid Gauge Basics + Much More

By Charlene Shafer



Book Information:
0543 $20.00. Basic techniques for the LK 150 (and all manual mid gauge machines)
No Ribber required.

This is a wonderful book for learning the basic skills or relearning what you have forgotten on the mid-gauge machines. It has a great section on making buttonholes and swatching using a standard ruler or the yellow ruler that comes with the machine.

Each lesson is very clear and easy to understand with step by step directions. The patterns that come with each lesson will help you learn each new technique. Some of the patterns have variations, so you will have lots to make from them. I love the way each lesson and the techniques that go with them are set up.

This book will help you learn all about the buttons on your carriage like how to do plating, slip stitch, tuck, lace, tuck lace. Even has a section on short rowing with patterns to help you learn about each. This must have book for your knitting library picks up where your manual leaves off.
