KS: Slip-Stitch Knits

The In-Depth Look:

This is a nice, slim book (just 64-pages) of slip-stitch knitting patterns … which, I know, doesn’t tell you anything you can’t get from looking at the cover.

The beauty of this book is that it gives you a dozen patterns that play with color and colorwork using slipped-stitches for knitting. You knit with just one color per row, but end up with creative, fun garments to wear. And by garments, I mostly mean thing things to wrap around your neck–scarves, cowls, and shawls.

The book starts with some basic instructions and a how-to for reading slip-stitch charts, and then dives immediately into the patterns. There’s a close-up of each stitch pattern to kick off the patterns and extra notes as needed for special techniques.

Personally, I think the scarves are the winners here, with the cowls a close second. I’m not in love with any of the shawls, but I appreciate the stitch-work, nonetheless.

Like I said, this is a nice little book, with equally nice patterns. Check it out at Amazon.com.
