An Essential Stitch Guide for Knitters,
This review is from: 450 Knitting Stitches: v. 2: Vol. 2 (The Harmony Guides) (Paperback)
I have an earlier edition of this volume. The advice, tips and abbreviations given are invaluable, particularly to beginners, though I believe even the expert knitter or 'would be' designer will find this book to be an excellent tool.
Using many of the stitches outlined in this book, I used up a quantitiy of different coloured and textured wools to make a striped sweater. Starting with a sleeve, working sideways on, across the body and down the other sleeve. I picked up stitches around the neck and sleeve ends, working ribbed cuffs.
The colourful and textured effect brought many compliments. Without this book I would have been at a loss as to know what stitch to use next.
It encourages experimentation and using different stitches can transform any old pattern to produce something new and different.
