Stitch dictionaries are a knitter's best friend, until he or she wants to use a pattern in a piece that is worked in the round or from the top down. Then it requires the sometimes dreaded calculations to rechart. And although most patterns can be converted, it takes time, can be challenging and takes the fun out of kniting. Now, with a stitch dictionary that includes patterns for knitting in every direction, knitters can spend more time doing what they love! Includes over 150 patterns. Hardcover, 288 pages.
