Stitch Book



Stitch Book
Does anyone know of a good book of knitting stitches?

I do not need basic knitting techniques, but a book on different stitches. There are many on Amazon but without looking inside a book it is sometimes disappointing once bought.

It depends on what you are looking for — if you want a book that has just an all around collections then
the various Vogue Knitting Stitchionary, Volumes 1-3 are excellent. Volume 1 is Knit and Purl, Volume 2 is Cables and Volume 3 is Color — expensive but really worth it!

Other volumes that I own and love include Barbara G. Walker: A Treasury of Knitting Patterns – in 4 versions.

A cheap quick reference is 400 Knitting Stitches: A Complete Dictionary of Essential Stitch Patterns
I think I bought mine for under $12

Did you know there is a major library of stitches on-line: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches.htm
and another at http://www.knitsavvy.com
