Review Quotes

"Step-by-step instructions and accompanying close-up photographs are the perfect format for this go-to guide. You'll be amazed at what you've been missing!"

"In the era of YouTube, how useful is a print guide to knitting cast-ons and bind-offs? Very, especially if you're designing your own knits, looking for alternate cast-ons or bind-offs to change an existing pattern, or trying to choose among a variety of options in a pattern. [Leslie Ann Bestor's] collection is comprehensive and well organized, and the directions are easy to follow."

-- "The Oregonian"

"Knitting teacher and fiber artist Bestor turns this deceptively simple topic into a fascinating read... This is a great reference for the knitter looking to customize her own projects, and is an ideal companion for anyone who dares to try her own hand at design."

-- "The Oregonian"

"The very best knitting books are the ones that educate, inspire and open up new knitting worlds. As so it is with Cast On, Bind Off, a terrific new reference book that walks knitters through more than 50 -- I'll repeat that, because it merits it -- more than 50 ways to start and end your projects. ... And that, folks, is why every blessed one of us needs this book. Like, now. ... I've seen a number of these techniques elsewhere, but never all of them together, and absolutely never in such a clear, easy-to-use format. This is a must for any knitter's library. You'll go back to it time and again, and you'll never again have a glorious project wrecked by the wrong technique. (Anyone who's ended up with a too-tight bind off on a sweater neck knows what I'm talking about.) Buy the book. Your knitting will thank you, and you'll thank Leslie Ann Bestor for writing Cast On, Bind Off." --The Oregonian's knitting blog,

-- "Margaret Radcliffe, knitting designer, teacher, and author of Circular Knitting Workshop"

"This spiral-bound book is a gem, chock-full of techniques to improve your knitting projects from start to finish. I love the organization of the book ...In addition to the handy spiral binding - so great when you're trying to follow along - there are photos of every step of the techniques, plus photos of projects using the techniques. Paws up! -- Austin American Statesman's knitting blog, Knittin' Kitten
