It’s been called “the new yoga.” Julia Roberts does it. Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Hilary Swank all do it. It’s knitting, a fiber art as old as time, and it’s sweeping the nation. But how can you know your knits from your purls? How can you put these simple methods together to create a knitted pattern? Field Guide to Knitting is the answer—a handy go-to reference book for a quick answer (is moss stitch the same as seed stitch?) or for picking a design for your next sweater (flip through the full-color section and take a look at examples of each stitch). Each stitch pattern will also include any history of the stitch, the best stitch gauge for getting pattern definition, the pieces the pattern works best in, and more. Featuring simple stitch patterns, as well as complicated lace and cables, Field Guide to Knitting will be a valuable resource for everyone from novices to Master Knitters. With 200+ 4-color photographs; Pub. Month: November 2007
