Check out the first review of Knitting from the Center Out from this month’s Vogue Knitting!

Vogue Knitting Cover

…. In this beautifully designed and rendered hardback, Yuhas makes a case for starting in medias res to create jewelry, socks (from the heel up), toys, blankets, shawls and sweaters (from the hood down). The idea to start from the center and knit outward isn’t new by the author’s own admission, but his wholesale — and contagious — interest in the technique takes it to new and delightful places. (If the toy octopi don’t shake a smile from you, it’s time to see a doctor.) Yuhas wisely includes a healthy tutorial chapter with advice on cast-ons and knitting in the round to help knitters with projects including the drop-dead thigh highs and pretty-as-a-petal Isosceles shawl. Though he delivers almost thirty projects in this premiere volume, Yuhas is just warming up. We’ll be hearing more from him: Someday we’ll look back and say, this is the book that launched a thousand cone hats.

Cone hats, you say? Here’s a sneak peek:

The book promises to be more than just some great patterns, although those are there too.  Check out Vogue Knitting’s review. [...]
