In Knitting from the Center Out, Daniel Yuhas teaches knitters the fascinating technique of starting a project with just a few stitches and knitting outward, in revolutions (or circles). The book features 28 mesmerizing projects, ranging from baby blankets and lace shawls to sweaters and stuffed toys, and also includes tutorials for the minimal skills required for center-out knitting, such as special cast-ons, increases, and decreases. Throughout the book are enlightening explanations of the underlying math and the architecture of the flat and dimensional shapes. Clear instructions and beautiful photography and illustrations assure that knitters of all levels and inclinations-whether they are technique junkies or not-will want to have this book.

Very interesting ideas. I don't like to knit socks but I found his heel-out sock pattern intriguing. Some of the patterns are quite strange (the half circle mitts) but some are gorgeous (the Dahlia blanket). Definitely worth a try for some innovative patterns and different ways of thinking of standard knitting projects.

LT - You made me laugh!
This book has great information and formulas for developing patterns. I would suggest exploring "Judy's Magic Cast-On" to replace the figure eight cast-on, as it produces a truer invisible provisional stitch

Projects available for viewing on Ravelry. Some cool patterns, but occasionally Yuhas' love for geometry overwhelms his sense of style.
