book of stitches recommendations
I have been searching for a thorough, easy to understand book of knitting stitches, with as many as possible. There are A LOT of books on this so before I make a decision I wanted to ask for suggestions here. I also found a cool site with 100 different pattern stitches for free but I would really like a book with more options.

Thanks in advance.

I know that VogueKnitting has a book of stitches, I think it's called the Stitch can find it on Amazon, and I think it's also available for eBook readers too.

Personally, I think Vogue has pretty good knitting publications, but if there's someone else who has a recommendation, I would consider their recommendation above mine.

I agree...the Vogue Stitchonary series is great! I have the knit/purl one, the one on cables, and the one on color knitting. Every one of them have beautiful swatches kintted up with the instructions, color schemes, and graphs.

Here you go.

This is the one that I use.

I have this one, and I think it's great!

I also have this collection, which is not as comprehensive but great for taking with you if you take your knitting on the go. :thumbsup:
