Synopsis

Synopsis

At last, a field guide to identifying and working more than 200 knitting stitches, from stockinette to Orenburg lace!
 
There are so many intriguing ways to knit yarn that it’s often tough to pick the right stitch. Help is on the way with Field Guide to Knitting, the stitch dictionary that belongs in every knitting bag.
 
This handy go-to reference book takes a comprehensive look at knit and purl stitches as well as cables, laces, ribs, and edge treatments. Learn to tell k2togs from ssks and to differentiate between ribbed basketweave and basket cable. Each entry reveals the history of the stitch, the best stitch gauge for achieving pattern definition, the garments most suited to the pattern, and more. Complete patterns for executing the stitch (and its variations) are also included. More than 200 full-color photographs make it easy to compare how stitches will look before committing yarn to needles.
 
Whether you just need to know if moss stitch is the same as seed stitch or you’re planning a complicated Aran sweater, Field Guide to Knitting has all the answers.
