Reviews - What do customers think about The Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume Two: Cables: The Ultimate Stitch Dictionary from the Editors of Vogue Knitting Magazine (Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Series)?
Had to have it Sep 21, 2008
Even if I never get good enough to do half the things in the book, I love flipping through looking at the pictures. It's like a recipe book for knitting with all these fantastic ingredients listed that you can combine any way you want.
Pretty dang good! Sep 4, 2008
I love this set of books because they are so pretty. Even though the number of stitch patterns they have in them is unimpressive, the swatches make them so much prettier to look at and be an inspiration.
A Must-have for Every Knitter! Aug 5, 2008
I think this is the best of all three Vogue Knitting Stichionaries, as it provides the most interesting ideas. There are so many fantastic cable patterns with complete instructions, both in charts and written (although there are errors in a few of the written instructions, so I recommend the charts). The cable patterns range from simple three or four stitches moving in one direction to many many intertwined cables. This book has more complex cable patterns than I've ever seen anywhere else.
Not comprehensive, but useful May 10, 2008
I know this series inspires strong reactions in people; definitely a "love it" or "hate it" kind of thing. My expectations for Volume Two: Cables was realistic, I think. I've had Vogue Knitting forever, and enjoy the swatches and clear photos, but I know not to expect finesse or depth. This volume has lots of easy-but-cool stitch patterns, and that's about it. I agree with other reviewers that the lack of a real index with thumbnails of each stitch is a real handicap. I shouldn't have to employ tons of labeled post-its to find my favorite stitches.
The charts, unfortunately, are gray-on-gray affairs that could be a lot bigger. There is plenty of room on the oversized pages to allow for many of the charts to have been at least 50% bigger than they are. However, the photos themselves are generously-sized and very clear.
Great eye-candy and a very attractive selection of cables. The price here at this site is so good that I bought it despite the limitations.
PUBLISHERS: If you ever check out the reviews here on this site (and you should), you'll find a huge chorus of needlecrafters begging for SPIRAL-BOUND versions of your books. If I'm teetering on the edge of deciding whether to lay down another $20-$40 on a knitting book, a spiral or turtle-binding will seal the deal.
love the choice Mar 12, 2008
I love the fact that this book has both written pattern and chart. I am not much of a chart person but to have the option is great, now I do not have to write it out.
