This is a creative guide to the 300 knitting stitches you really need to know, including contemporary stitches and timeless classics.
An invaluable resource of original stitch patterns, this collection is suitable for newcomers, designers and knitters of all abilities. Instead of being merely a round-up of familiar stitches, this is a visual feast of new material put together by expert author-designers Lesley Stanfield and Melody Griffiths, with a wide experience of hand knitting. It is a must-have addition to existing reference books on the subject.
The stitches are organized into knit and purl, textures and ribs, twist stitches, cables, lace, bobbles and bells, colour and intarsia designs, and unusual techniques including rarities like entrelac, double-sided fabric and mosaic effects. Clear and simple charts are provided with each pattern throughout the book.
