Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
By simply transferring, or slipping, selected stitches from one needle to another without knitting or purling them, knitters can create striking color patterns using only one color at a time and without needing to strand different colored yarns across the back of their knitting. Slip stitchsometimes called mosaic knittingis ideal for the beginner, while knitters at any level will enjoy the design possibilities of these intriguing multicolor patterns. Bartlett takes the reader step-by-step through working with charted designs, choosing colors for striking effect, combining slip-stitch patterns and incorporating them into garments. All public libraries will want this one.JZ
