Interesting stitch patterns.

I find mosaic patterns a bit addictive. This book has some great all-over repeating patterns as well as lots of large square designs (102 rows x 53 stitches). Goes on my list of knitting books to buy someday.

Gives me the shakes every time I open this book because I can't stop coming up with ideas of what to knit next. Sigh. Too much yarn, and too many projects on my to do list. I guess she who gets the most of these done is a winner..

Recommends it for: anyone interested in decorative design or needlework
I just checked a 1976 version of this out of the Asheville library. It's a fantastic collection of grid-based geometric needlework patterns. Very inspirational. I'll definitely re-interpret some of these ideas in my tapestry crochet work.

Lots of great patterns, as I read it my head kept spinning with the project possibilities! Borrowed from a library, I might need to purchase a copy of my own!
