Knitting Stitches VISUAL Encyclopedia
A stitch pattern dictionary is a must-have for every knitter's bookshelf. A collection of stitch combinations--everything from basic knit-and-purl stitches to more complex cables, lace, and colorwork--enables knitters to create their own designs or modify existing patterns with ease. The content is timeless (unlike a book that contains patterns for garments), so this hardcover book will have a long shelf life and has the potential to be a solid backlist performer for years to come.
Sharon Turner is the author of several knitting books, including Teach Yourself VISUALLY Knitting, Teach Yourself VISUALLY Knitting Design, and Knitting VISUAL Quick Tips (all from Wiley). She designs knitwear and published Monkeysuits, a line of knitwear patterns for babies and children.
