Book for decorative increase/decreases?
Is there a book that has detail stuff like decorative increases and decreases? Or a website that shows them? I've looked at the videos here and they are great, but sometimes I like to have printed material next to me when I'm working on something rather than going to the video repeatedly. I also thought there may be other styles of decrease or increases? Paired ones would be perfect, too. Thanks!

BTW...I have done a google search and came up with a lot of stuff, but nothing comprehensive.

Try the Vogue knitting book. It's been very helpful to me.

You might want to check out Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top. I believe she lists about 10 different paired increases.
