Stitch dictionaries are to knitters what Webster's is to a writer. Within the pages of these inspiring reference books are the endless variations of knit and purl stitches that produce the fabrics of all knitting. But in the Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary, designer Wendy Bernard does something no other author has done before-- she presents instructions for working 150 popular stitch patterns four different ways: top down, bottom up, back and forth, and in the round. This hefty collection, ranging from lace and cables to colorwork and fancy edgings, is loaded with beautifully photographed swatches of each pattern, plus charted and text instructions. To showcase the stitch patterns in action, Bernard also includes instructions for eight garments as well as her famous formulas for knitting garments without a pattern. This is an invaluable go-to resource, sure to inspire legions of knitters to use stitch patterns in new and exciting ways.

An awesome resource for learning new techniques, stitches, patterns, and textures. I love being able to integrate what I've learned into my new projects! Super helpful that flat and in-the-round patterns are given!

Appreciated picture's of the edges of the swatches and the few comments on being reversible. Not as comprehensive as some.
