A complete guide to more than 300 knitting stitches, shown in diagrams and photos"Very super stitches…nothing more to say!" Stevie Wonder said it all for us. Although we do have afew more words we’d like to get in here. Don’t be superstitious, because you can believe in SuperStitches Knitting, the complete pocket guide to knitting stitches and a great how-to-knit guide.Author Karen Hemingway presents full how-tos for all the essentials of knitting, including choosingneedles and yarn, casting on, binding off, increasing and decreasing, creating texture, working withmultiple colors, fixing mistakes, and finishing. Then Super Stitches Knitting turns to the stitch patterns—more than 300 of them, all fully explained in how-tos and full-color photos. Instructions and diagrams for each stitch, including knit and purl, vertical motifs, ribbing, borders, dimensional elements, cables, eyelet, lace, color knitting, and more, are shown on lefthand pages, and a photograph of the knitted result is on the right-hand page. This essential book, packed with super stitches, makes knocking on wood, throwing salt, and avoiding black cats completely unnecessary for knitters at every level from beginning to advanced.
