Whip Your Knitting into Shape

do*mi*kni*trix \ da-mi-'ni-triks \ n, pl -trices [US, var. of dominatrix, re: knitting] (2005): a woman who dominates her knitting; broadly: a badass knitter

You have knitted your last bad piece. Let the DomiKNITrix show you the ropes. Yes, it may be painful to take the time to knit a gauge swatch, count stitches and fix mistakes. But just think of the pleasure you'll get when you knit a gorgeous, perfect sweater with no holes and no uneven stitches.

Learn the rules or else. Inside you'll find a no-nonsense, comprehensive guide to essential knitting operations and finishing techniques, including step-by-step instructions for all the basic stitches used in the patterns in the book.

Get your hands dirty. The book features over 20 spicy projects to satisfy any knitting appetite. For a Knitting Quickie, choose from one of the smaller projects, such as the Mohawk hat or the popular Snow Devil cap. If you want more of a challenge, try the L'il Red Riding Hoodie or the Big Bad Wolf icon sweater, The Slink or City Coat.

Knit patterns for the young and the restless: halters, hoodies, skulls, devil hats. Then suddenly, some pretty, pretty sweaters. There is a surprisingly long, detailed, and well-illustrated instructional section. How punk rock.

Before I got this book I was a terrible knitter, and I found it very helpful in improving my stitching and getting on the road to completing a project.

This is the book to scare your knitting into shape! Beginner knitters will get good tips on being excellent right from the start. Experienced knitters can fine-tune their work and have fewer UGH projects. I also love the durable cover, it'll take some abuse.

one of the most informative and well presented knit books ever.
don't let the title and look scare you.
nifty patterns may be a bit above a beginner, but great inspiration and thorough instructions to take you to the next level
