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.

This book has beautiful photography and I love the spiral binding. It is an interesting read and shows what the finished product should look like. I would like to have seen a chapter that illustrated how to do each stitch. I expected a book entitled "Stitch Dictionary" would include that.

5 out of 5 stars

The handiest book I have. Creativity flows with topdown knitting and ribbings. Clear, concise and easy to follow directions. A simple topdown sweater becomes a work of art.

This is my favorite stitch dictionary. I just love the way the book's format shows each stitch knitted using four different methods. Having this information at-hand will make you a more versatile knitter. The information is very attractively presented.The directions and charts are excellent. The photos are clear, and the many stitch patterns are well-organized, making them easy to find. This is a book you will USE! Highly recommended.
