Stitch in Time: Heirloom Knitting Skills
Available in Stock
In this interesting practical guide, the knitwear designer Rita Taylor explores the most lasting knitting traditions, looking in turn at each of six types of knitting stitch: textured, twisted, raised, cable, lace and colour work. For each type, there are two projects to knit (including socks, shawls, a Celtic cardigan and a Fair Isle sweater), and an illustrated directory of traditional patterns. Altogether there are instructions for working more than 150 stitch patterns.
