The Knitter's Stitch Collection
This is a creative guide to the 300 knitting stitches you really need to know, including brand new stitches and timeless classics. An invaluable resource of original stitch patterns, this collection is 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 two author-designers with a wide experience of hand knitting. It is a must-have addition to existing reference books on the subject.
Organized for easy access, 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. Easy-to-read charts are provided throughout.
