“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. […] 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.” —Leslie Petrovski, Vogue Knitting (full review here)

“Daniel Yuhas offers an innovative, varied pattern collection using elegant mathematical principles…. A fun romp for an adventurous-minded (but not necessarily expert) knitter.” —Jaala Spiro, KnitCircus (full review here)

“His nearly 30 designs are a combination of wild and winsome, matter-of-fact and magnificent…” —Barbara Jacobs, Booklist (full review here)

“The patterns are killer, lovely and unusual all in one. The Half-Moon Mittens, Heel-Up Socks and Tree of Life Afghan are must knits for me. The Leaf-Yoke Sweater is so spectacular that I show the pattern to every knitter that comes to my house saying, ‘Let’s knit this!’.” —Jillian Moreno, (full review here)

“Knitting from the Center Out is an excellent compilation of patterns, techniques, and illustrations to help a knitter of almost any level deconstruct a knitted piece in his or her mind before constructing it with needles. The projects, incidentally, are both interesting and gorgeous, making the knitter look like he or she created wearable art. Revolutionary knitting is an old technique, but Daniel Yuhas has brought his ingenuity to give it a brand-new spin.” — Amy Kaspar, Chicago Knitting Examiner (full review here)

“There are so many pretty and intriguing patterns here that knitters will have trouble deciding what to play with first.” — Sarah E. White, (full review here)
