Wendy Bernard’s groundbreaking reference title Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary was the first of its kind to provide stitch patterns written for top-down, bottom-up, back-and-forth, and in-the-round constructions—and readers took notice. Now Bernard is back with The Knitting All Around Stitch Dictionary, which picks up where the first volume left off, adding hundreds of new stitch patterns organized similarly by type—knit and purl, textured stitches, ribs, lace, and cables—plus a chapter on mosaic knitting. Each chapter of The Knitting All Around Stitch Dictionary includes a customizable pattern so that knitters can easily swap out stitch patterns to make their own unique knitted items.

Jean Frost’s expertise with tailored knitting is showcased in this thorough compendium of fabric construction for couture jackets. The stitches are arranged into families that indicate the type of woven material they imitate—houndstooth, quilted stitch, herringbone, basket weave, twill, chevron, tweed, and fabric stitch. A full-size swatch worked in knitting worsted is accompanied by instructions in charts and words that introduce the multiple stitches. Stitch and row gauge as well as needle size for each swatch provides a useful starting point for knitters. Multiple variations of these stitches are displayed and knitters are instructed that adding additional colors, fibers, or yarn can dramatically transform the template. Using clearly illustrated techniques and explanations for how, when, and why to add edge stitches for perfect finishing, this is a fitting follow up to Jean Frost’s previous jacket-specific crafting books.
