This book is a great knitting resource. I have referred to it often for projects that I am making up as I go along as well as to add texture to pieces that I am working on from patterns (with some adjustments for changes in gauge).
This is an okay reference for stitch patterns. My main complaint is that the charts are difficult to read and the organization kind of drives me batty--I can never seem to find anything without flipping through the whole book. It is good for inspiration when I'm just making up a project as I go along, though.
The Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns contains over 286 designs, covering everything from lace to cables to textured stitches to basic knit/purl. It contains both charts and written directions, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to either design their own patterns or customize written ones.
This book has been my bible for the last couple of months! SO useful, and packed with inspirational patterns.
Every stitch you ever wanted and more...
Good stitch reference!
