I have so. many. stitch dictionaries it’s kind of unseemly. So this week’s giveaway will get one of them off my shelf.
Knitting Stitches Visual Encyclopedia by Sharon Turner features patterns for 350 different stitches, including:
knit and purl patterns
- rib patterns
- bobbles and textured stitches
- slip stitch patterns
- twist stitch patterns
- cable patterns
- drop stitch, yarn overs, eyelets and lace
- borders and edgings
- creative stitches and combinations
- color knitting
Each pattern is written out as well as charted (except for the colorwork chapter, which only has charts). A swatch of each pattern is shown. The pictures are a little small but you can get the idea of what the finished stitch is supposed to look like.
If you’d like a chance to win this book, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, April 2. I’d love to know which of these types of stitches sounds most fun to you.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
