    Knitting Books 002

    My ongoing series of knitting books that I consume and like, but do not list in my official book lists. The first knitting books list is here.

    Ravelry or Amazon links

    The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd – The books gives basic instructions for all kinds of patterns in any size and gauge.

    Knitty Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush – Bush’s sock books are all popular for a reason; they feature interesting and nice sock patterns.

    Son of Stitch N’ Bitch by Debbie Stoller – The SNB books are not great for patterns, but they usually have a couple of gems though. This one has Uncle Argyle Scarf and Smoking by the extraordinary Jared Flood.

    Folk Vests by Cheryl Oberle – It seems I like knitting things that I never really wore before I started knitting. I got this book and wanted to knit 80% of it even though I hardly wear vests or know people who do.

    Wrap Style ed. Interweave Press – I made the Shetland Triangle, and I hope to make the Lady Eleanor Stole one day along with a couple of others.

    Vogue Knitting on the Go Pattern Books – Portable and small pattern books. Here are some that I’ve consumed.

    Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falik et al. – Filled with lots of useful and lovely quick knits.

    The Knitter’s Book of Yarn by Clara Parkes et al. – A great resource as it details lots of info about fibres. It also has some fantastic patterns.

    Viking Patters for Knitting by Elsebeth Lavold – Do you like cables? This is your book.

    101 Designer One Skein Wonders ed. Judith Durant – Lots of nice stashbusters like the first book.
