Overview

What today's knitters love even more than knitting is visiting their local yarn shops and stocking up on new ideas, patterns, and tons of yarn. This collection of 30 patterns chosen from hundreds of entries submitted by yarn shops across the country is full of personal stories, knitting wisdom, and favorite tips from the people who have helped fuel today's knitting revolution. The patterns range from designer sweaters and kids' knits to small take-along projects. More than a pattern book, this delightful collection is like a trip to the yarn shop, a private session with the best knitters around, and a friendly chat with the country's most passionate knitters all rolled into one.

Editorial Reviews

Knitter's Review
The images of the actual garments themselves are exquisite . . . The patterns are beautiful.
Library Journal
Imagine browsing through the nation's top yarn shops and chatting with owners about the projects that most appeal to their customers, how they got into the yarn business, and what they have learned about knitting through the years. Then imagine including everything you've learned along with 33 original patterns from 33 local yarn shops in a richly illustrated pattern compendium. The result would be Knitter's Stash. Featured here are stores throughout the country from Bette Bornside's shop in New Orleans to My Yarn Shop in Coos Bay to Countrywool in Hudson, NY, to Rumpelstiltskin in Sacramento. And for the knitter who likes to travel and what knitter doesn't? there is a comprehensive directory of yarn stores all over the United States. Highly recommended for all knitting collections.
