Dressing up a plain stockinette stitch pattern can be as simple as introducing a more interesting stitch into the project.  Finding the right variation can be a bit of a search, unless you have the handy Knit Stitch Guide.  This handy little booklet by Rita Weiss contains the instructions for ninety six different stitches.  Adding a personal touch to a pattern is easy with the help of this book.  Just flip through the pages and find a pattern you like—you can easily work these stitches into any project you’re working on.

You’ll find a variety of different stitches in this handy little booklet.  Depending on what you’re looking for, you can find instructions for cables, lace, or simple color work designs.  Weiss hits on each of the main type of stitch desings: knit and purl stitches, ribbings, emossed stitches, multi-color stitches, and eyelets and cables.  Each pattern has a full-sized picture and complete instructions, written out row by row.  These creative stitches will make your projects a real hit.  You can easily fit this booklet into your knitting bag or purse, so it’s great for that emergency inspiration boost.

With this useful little guide in your knitting library, you'll be ready for you next knitting adventure.  Take the road less traveled and add one of these creative, attractive patterns to that boring sock or cardigan you're working on.  Experimenting with these different stitches is the perfect gateway into designing your own knitting patters!
