When you've seen that beautiful knit sweater in the store and you know exactly what stitches were used, when you've worked the same stitch over and over and when you've seen the perfect pattern, you might call yourself a pro. However, what if you've come across the most perfect pair of knit mittens, but you just wish it had a little something extra to it? That's where the Big Book of Knit Stitches comes into play. With over 360 stitches to learn, you will easily find something to make those mittens into your own unique design.


The Big Book of Knit Stitches is a unique book every knitter should have in their book collection. It doesn't have any patterns to follow, but it has hundreds of stitches that allow you to create your very own pattern. The stitches are organized by type including cables, lace, ribs, textures, slip stitch and many more; this allows you to quickly go to the stitch you're looking for. You can find knit and purl variations of all kinds and at all skill levels from beginner to advanced.


Each page consists of two stitches with a beautiful colored photo that is close enough for you to see all the detail. Each one also consists of a stitch repeat. What you'll really enjoy about this book is that there isn't any reference to gauge. You can use any of the stitches provided with any type and weight of yarn that you want. Not sure if you'll like what it looks like? Just knit up a quick swatch or two and you'll know exactly the look you're going for. 


With over 300 stitches to choose from it will probably be the most challenging to pick which one is your favorite. From easy knit scarves and hats to advanced knit afghans and sweaters, you can have one-of-a-kind projects in no time. This book is an amazing reference to have on-hand for knitters of all skill levels.
