gargoylelib, your knitted pillow cover is amazing!

Saturday, shortly after posting my post, I started to try out a stitch pattern I've never done before, and now I'm making it into another scarf The stitch is called Small Diamond Brocade. I got it from the Vogue Stitchionary Book for knit and purl stitches. Here is what I have so far, and a closeup of the stitch pattern too.

Would any of you be able to recommend a good, easy to understand, and thorough, book for someone like me? I want to learn a lot of the techniques and such.

Many thanks again to all of you
Yup,How to Knit by Debbie Bliss..well illustrated and pages of different stitch patterns...also, each technique she has a pattern to that's my vote
