about

750 Knitting Stitches is both a stitch guide and a how-to knit primer, all in one volume. You get all the information needed to get started, including how to choose yarn and needles, read patterns, work basic stitches, how to check gauge, increase and decrease, join pieces and finish projects and care for your knitted items.

The comprehensive pattern library includes 750 knitting stitches, from simple to ornate, including knit and purl patterns, basic and complex cables, Fair Isles and intarsia designs, and rib and edging patterns. Each is fully explained with instructions and accompanied by a full-color photo of a sample knitted swatch. All swatches are worked in updated yarns, beautifully photographed and accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions.

Based on The Harmony Guides, which have been a longstanding and valued reference for handcrafters for more than thirty years, with over half a million worldwide sales, this edition is updated with eye-catching photography and innovative new stitches, but also never forgetting the heritage of the guides.

With 750 Knitting Stiches you can knit, purl, cable and yarn over your way through 750 stitches to create any number of beautiful pieces. This really will be the only stitch guide and reference title needed on any knitter's bookshelves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh Iti s a great book but like other readers, if the book is about "stitches" then it should focus solely on that. Do the color work in another book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unsure While there are many great ideas, the biggest problem I have with this book is the lack of knitting charts. If it is the "ultimate" knitting stitch bible, there should be charts for all the stitches. I also think there are too many of the colored patterns, but that's probably because I am not crazy about changing colors all the time, so that's just my personal bias.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stitch dictionary Lovely hardcover edition. Great value for the money. I use this all the time to make sweaters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspiring! Extensive stitch dictionary with good-sized, colour pictures of all the stitch samples. Unfortunately there are no comments about whether the stitches samples are reversible or pictures of the edges of the swatches.
