Book Description

26 Oct 1989 A David & Charles craft book
Designed as a complete guide for today's machine knitter, this book presents an array of stitches covering the structures of tuck stitch, lace, weaving, jacquards, cut float techniques, partial knitting, needle out effects, and edgings and braidings. The stitch patterns are designed to fit any standard 24 needle repeat, and the book contains alternative ideas for interpretation, and encourages the development of new ideas for exploiting the colour and texture of materials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patterns 1 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very useful book with photograph samples alongside the punch card pattern drawing. Although it was published some time ago, it remains classically excellent.
