Circular Knitting Redefined

The new book Circular Knitting Redefined is out, and is a fun interpretation on using circular needles. While all the projects are knit on circular needles, they aren't all in the round--all sorts of methods are included, such as side-to-side, top-down, and more.

I did two designs for the book. First, the Tribeca Belted Cardigan in Nashua Handknits Ecologie Wool (a nice thick and thin organic wool). It's knit in one piece from the bottom up, with raglan shaping and a shawl collar. No seams! The belt is made using double knitting for a nice thick piece that has no "wrong side".

Second, the Chain-Link Cardigan, knit in Berroco Comfort DK. It is knit from cuff to cuff with a slip-stitch color pattern on the cuffs and body. The color pattern is in garter stitch so it stands out in relief against the stockinette stitch ground. Both sweaters are sized up to a 52" bust so they will fit a wide variety of women.

I inhereted this book after my mom past away a short three months ago. I have started the making the Sweetie Pie Stripes baby sweater but for some odd reason there is not page 33/34 in my book. Surely my mom would never remove any pages from her books. Anyway I am trying to get a copy of page 33/34 so that I may finish the baby sweater. I believe page 33 would have the end directions for the baby sweater and 34 would have the beginning direction for a womans sweater which I would also like to have. I wonder if you would be able to help me? If so my email is
