Knitters: It's time to take it to the next level. And who better than Debbie Stoller to show you how. The expert knitter and gifted, edgy author who introduced knitting to a new generation with her New York Times bestseller, Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook, now shows her readers how to do more-lots more.

Stitch 'n Bitch Superstar Knitting is the only knitter's handbook to teach the full array of advanced knitting techniques and skills, such as double-knitting, knitting lace, complicated color work, beading, and more. Writing with the clarity that makes her such an effective teacher, and the attitude that got her dubbed "knitting superstar" (San Francisco Chronicle), Stoller explains how to "knit by the numbers;" get creative with stripes; embellish with crochet, beading, and I-cords; how to make cable patterns; and how to use color forms. There's also a whole section on DIY-which gives a tutorial on creating your own knitting patterns.

And then the brilliant icing on the cake-41 cool, funky, and fabulous patterns from Debbie and the Stitch 'n Bitch community: a fluttery Rococco Shawl, Cap Sleeve Lattice Sweater, Jackie-O sequined cardigan, Empire Strikes Back dress, the adorable Button It children's sweater with changeable animal patches. Plus sexy stockings, stylish handbags, blankets, scarves, and more, all photographed in full-color.
Debbie Stoller is the bestselling author of the Stitch'n Bitch series of knitting books and calendars. She comes from a long line of Dutch knitters, has a Ph.D. from Yale in the psychology of women, and is the editor-in-chief of Bust magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great projects! Beautiful projects to knit, Like number of designs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Debbie Stoller Book Not For Beginners Although there is a great deal of good information and patterns in these books, unfortunately many of the patterns have mistakes that have not been updated by the author or publisher. These books have been out a number of years and by now you would think that any errors would be corrected. However, I just started a pattern and discovered errors and if not for having knitting experience, would have thrown away a lot of money spent on the yarn to make the pattern. So if you are able to figure out when a design has mistakes then these books are good for those knitters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of Socks Breaks the unwritten code of knitting books by going over the same thing twice, and re-printing old designs with very small changes. There were a few cool designs in the book, but the sometimes too-kitschy writing style and the odd designs (not good odd, like her usual stuff, just odd-odd) make this book less than what I've come to expect from this series. Pick it up for: A few sweaters, 3 kids designs, some totally amazing skirts, and TONS OF SOCKS. Drop it if: you were interested in learning new techniques, and "superstar" stitches.....pick up a stitch dictionary instead. (I did)
