Most of the stitch dictionaries on knitters' shelves are remixes of familiar stitch patterns already published elsewhere. Not so for Lynne Barr's groundbreaking book Reversible Knitting. Not only is every one of the 50 stitch patterns completely new and never before seen, but each is also reversible--for a total of 100 different looks! Reversible stitch patterns can be used to create projects where either side can be worn facing outward, or where two sides of the piece are visible simultaneously (such as a scarf or a garment with collar or cuffs that that can be worn up or down). In addition to stitch patterns, the book features 20 such projects--from accessories like scarves, hats, and socks to sweaters and dresses--designed by the author and by 12 top knitwear designers including STC authors Véronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, and Teva Durham. Rounding out the book are in-depth instructions for the specialized techniques required for reversilbe work.

Young, innovative designs team with reversible stitch patterns and sophisticated technique instruction for a League of Superknitting. Some kryptonite: no alternative yarns are listed, nor is the yarn weight even explained.

Love these patterns! I've been wanting to learn how to do this since I started knitting. Now, I can add to my skill set :-)

The sweater on the cover is absolutely gorgeous, have been wanting to make it since the first time I set eyes on the book.

I need to purchase the book, I keep signing it out.
