Overview

A complete guide to more than 300 knitting stitches, shown in diagrams and photos

"Very super stitches...nothing more to say!" Stevie Wonder said it all for us. Although we do have a few more words we’d like to get in here. Don’t be superstitious, because you can believe in Super
Stitches Knitting
, the complete pocket guide to knitting stitches and a great how-to-knit guide.
Author Karen Hemingway presents full how-tos for all the essentials of knitting, including choosing needles and yarn, casting on, binding off, increasing and decreasing, creating texture, working with multiple colors, fixing mistakes, and finishing. Then Super Stitches Knitting turns to the stitch patterns—more than 300 of them, all fully explained in how-tos and full-color photos. Instructions and diagrams for each stitch, including knit and purl, vertical motifs, ribbing, borders, dimensional elements, cables, eyelet, lace, color knitting, and more, are shown on lefthand pages, and a photograph of the knitted result is on the right-hand page. This essential book, packed with super stitches, makes knocking on wood, throwing salt, and avoiding black cats completely unnecessary for knitters at every level from beginning to advanced.

    Love the pictures

    The pictures are wonderful in this book. They show detail about every stitch presented. It is great for a quick reference when looking for a new knitting stitch to try. The steps for each stitch are easy to read and understand. I highly recommend this book if you are new to knitting and also if you are a seasoned knitter.

    Excellent For Knitters and Resource Book

    I looked at lots of books before I found Super Stitches Knitting. It is an excellent book for the beginner and a good resource book for the experienced knitter. The stitch patterns are clear and easy to follow and the pictures are excellent. I am using Super Stitches Knitting to design my own knitting projects for my family and friends.
