Purchased book today for kindle, but my cover is different and I have less stitches that stated on the cover I thought I was buying!I think it looks like a nice book, but not happy with getting 54How can this be corrected?
This is a good collection of decorative stitch patterns. I'm not sure I would call it 70 different ones, though, because many of them are just slight variations on other ones. I had some fun browsing through it, but it would be very had to find a specific stitch, or type of stitch, if I were looking for such. The stitches progress from basic to more complicated, but there is no other organization to the book - no table of contents or index or such. I should say that I have the Kindle version - which has lovely illustrations on my tablet (they're a bit too small to see on my phone) - but the navigation is a bit of a problem. I will have to go through the book putting "bookmarks" on every stitch that I think I might want to use so that I can find it again.
It's nice having the instructions for 70 stitches. Although I already know many of them, there were enough that are new to me that it was worth it to pay $2.99 for the Kindle version.My "complaint," if you can call it that, is the fact that many of the photos are very small and that many of the sample swatches were knit with a dark yarn making the stitches difficult to see. Some of the photos aren't even fully in focus, which certainly doesn't help!
I love stitch pattern books and read them like some people do cookbooks. I've said this about another favorite stitch pattern book I have reviewed, and since I collect stitch pattern books like others do cookbooks, I've got or had quite a few. I approached this book a little reluctantly, because I have read and enjoyed so many other pattern books However, I am happy with this investment. Naturally there are several patterns I have seen before as she goes the logical route, but there was a surprising number of patterns in it that I was not familiar with and have found very enjoyable! I'm glad that i got this book and thank Tara for her efforts. I know it wasn't easy, but it was worth it..
I bought this book as a kindle app for my phone and thoroughly enjoy carrying my yarn and needles along. Odd moments are great to grab. I've made several of these patterns into cotton dishcloths; adding extra rows and stitches for borders in way easy, and the results are great. The other suggestion of making squares for an afghan is also on the back burner.
Love this book and refer to it everytime I start a new project. These are not overly complex patterns, but are beautiful all the same. The photography is great (even on my Kindle it shows up well) and I've already ventured into trying some new patterns. Well done and an excellent presentation!
Just Stitches: 70 Knitting Stitch Patterns to Inspire Your Next Project (Tiger Road Crafts Book 4)I am an avid knitter, make up my own designs and love to see patterns. I can then piece them together in a sweater or baby afghan.This one starts out with abbreviations of the stitches and then onto the patterns.Each pattern shows a colorful swatch and the written instructions on how to knit it.Excellent resource book to keep with hard copies of similar books I have in my knitting library.Turkish Stitch and Cosmopolitan will be the several I try for a charity baby afghan. So simple yet comes out elegant.Other knit and crochet works are highlighted at the end.
This is a very basic and to the point stitch dictionary. This is really good for an advanced beginner knitter or higher. The stitch patterns are well documented but there is no further explanation of any special techniques one may need to know and no description of any special needles or tools. This is a perfect reference resource.In the Kindle version the pictures were a bit small and sometimes the pattern instructions were not all on one page. It is still easy to follow.I am really glad I picked it up.
