Congratulations to Carol.
I am a little obsessed with knitting stitch dictionaries. They’re so fun to look through and play with, wondering what kind of pattern you might make with that stitch, and sometimes actually doing it.
This week’s giveaway is a new collection, Knit Stitch Dictionary by Debbie Tomkies. It includes 250 stitches using basic knit and purl, twisted and traveling stitches, eyelets and lace, bobbles, tucks, pleats, wrapped and dropped stitches, slip stitches, chevrons, colorwork, cables and more. Each pattern is shown in a large swatch with both written and charted instructions, so it’s a great book for learning chart reading, too, if that’s a skill you need help with.
It’s a great book with a variety of options that isn’t too overwhelming, and a fun way to practice different techniques on a small scale of jazz up basic knitting projects.
If you’d like a chance to win a copy of this book, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday June 7. I’d love to know if you have a favorite knitting stitch, or how you use stitch patterns when you knit. (I’m pretty partial to Moss Stitch right now.)
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
