4.0 out of 5 stars Every stitch pattern you would ever need
Amazing variety of patterns, never knew there were so many. Glossary to help if you haven't used a particular instruction before. Charts are helpful if you can understand the symbols which are explained in the glossary as well. Word of advice, buy the hard copy not Kindle version. There are no page numbers and you can only bookmark one page so it makes it tedious trying...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea BUT
I have been looking for the perfect stitch directory and so far, haven't found it. This one has been particularly disapponting. The binding is stiff and makes it hard to leave the pages open while knitting, so it is not practical. The samples are not all well knitted, some are quite irregular. Some pages are half empty.

Amazing variety of patterns, never knew there were so many. Glossary to help if you haven't used a particular instruction before. Charts are helpful if you can understand the symbols which are explained in the glossary as well. Word of advice, buy the hard copy not Kindle version. There are no page numbers and you can only bookmark one page so it makes it tedious trying to find anything, especially if you haven't noted the name of the stitch. Also you can't copy so I've ended up writing out instructions. I've had great fun trying out about 20 of the patterns, now the problem is what to knit to use them!

4.0 out of 5 stars clear instructions, 17 Jun 2013

This review is from: Knitting Stitches Visual Encyclopedia (Teach Yourself VISUALLY Consumer) (Hardcover)
I do like this book but at the moment I am knitting baby cardigans and want patterns to insert into the plain patterns I have got . Unfortunately not many patterns in the book surfice especially the lacy ones which I particularly want as they require too many stitches. However I am working on that. I especially like the concise but clear instruction format in the book and the clarity of the pictures of every pattern sequence too.

One of my best buys. It encourages you to experiment with pattern.
So easy to follow and has colourful pictures of what the pattern should look like.
Just like a recipe book with full colour illustrations.

Simple and easy instructions to follow. Pictures help you when using patterns you have not used or know. Just need to organize more time to try them all out.
