Careful! Some of these stitches have errors. Reversible Diamonds is one bad one.
I have this on my kindle which won't let me put in my notes/corrections. Nor can I print out a pattern page to put in a project bag.

What a great reference book! I am putting this one on my wish list. I love that each stitch is photographed and includes the directions--plus suggestions of when and how to use.

(Full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Wiley to review on my blog.)

I wish it were in the front but at least they have one). I checked it out from the library first but then ended up buying it. The stitches are at a ...more

The title pretty much says it all. You won't get anything on needle types, yarn selection, or how to start a project. What you will get is a gorgeous assortment of stitch patterns with easy-to-read descriptions. This is not for the first-time knitter, but it's wonderful for anyone who wants to learn some new stitches, whether it be for a scarf, a blanket, or a particularly ambitious sweater. The only thing that would make this book better is if next to each pattern it featured some indication of ...more

Use it for women’s coats, skirts, cushion covers, and washcloths. Cast on a multiple of 2 sts. Rows 1, 3, 5, and 7 (WS): Purl. Row 2 (RS): *LT, k2, LT, RT; rep from * to end.
