Description

A Fresh Look at a Classic Technique

Slip stitch is one of the simplest and most versatile knitting techniques, but it's often overlooked. The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is a modern and thorough take on this technique that delivers beautiful colorwork and gorgeous textures—with minimal effort.

A complete overview covers all the basics of slip-stitch knitting, including stitch formation, reading charts, customizing stitch patterns, choosing yarns, designing with slip-stitch patterns, and more. Forty stitch patterns, many of which are reversible, stretch the boundaries of slip stitch, creating colorwork that is just as graphic as Fair Isle, but much simpler; woven-looking fabrics; and fabulous textures that are sometimes combined with lace and cables. Sixteen original projects for cardigans, pullovers, hats, bags, scarves, and more showcase the versatility of slip stitch by using it as an allover pattern or accent.

Whether you're new to this exciting stitch or looking to go beyond the basics, The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is your essential guide.

        Slip-stitch knitting--where yarn loops are intentionally slipped from one needle to another without knitting or purling--is used for a variety of effects, including faux stranded colorwork and textured knits. Goberstein and Merchant-Dest, who previously collaborated on The Art of Seamless Knitting, explore this diverse technique through a series of stitch, garment, and accessory patterns. The authors divide the collection by type of slip-stitch pattern--traditional (including mosaic knitting), woven, fancy (including faux lace and cables), and reversible knits. Each section includes a brief stitch dictionary featuring knitted swatches with written and charted instructions, followed by a selection of garment and accessory patterns featuring slip-stitch patterns. The designs highlight the versatility of this simple technique, and the stitch dictionaries provide an array of options for knitters interested in designing their own slip-stitch knits. VERDICT Knitters curious about exploring new techniques will enjoy this guide to slip-stitch knitting.
