From knit and purl to eyelets and edgings, this guide contains more than 200 knitted stitches for creative knitters to discover, learn, and use. Every stitch is shown as a clear swatch to demonstrate the effect and texture, and the pattern is given both written and as an easy-to-follow diagram. Along with explanations of casting on, binding off, cables, and tips on reading knitting patterns, this comprehensive guide also includes nine projects, among them a patchwork cushion, a cable throw, a matching placemat and coaster, a "making waves" scarf, and a "falling leaves" handbag.
