Reviews

"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.... Knitters curious about exploring new techniques will enjoy this guide to slip-stitch knitting." --Library Journal

"Wow! This book has it all" --Heather Zoppetti Designs"This is a great book--not only does it have a nice array of pretty patterns, but it is a great stitch dictionary for a lot of different slipped stitch patterns. And it contains a lot of useful how-to information." --Wendy Knits"I tend to think of Faina and Simona as the designers of 'the little black dress', the staples that you need to have in your wardrobe and on your bookshelf." --Yarn Yenta"This, very well and absolutely beautifully designed by Interweave book, has it all and 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. In addition to 40 slip-stitch patterns, there are 16 lovely and easy-to-make projects not only beautifully done, but also amazingly eye opening and such inspirational." --My Little City Girl"You will have so much fun watching all of these unusual patterns unfold as you knit. And you'll be amazed at how much simpler it is to do than you might think. The well-written instructions and excellent photography are incredibly helpful, too." --Times Union

"I discovered this book is filled with wonderful techniques that I am thrilled to learn about, not just mosaic knitting..." --My Central Jersey's "In Stitches" column

"These patterns challenge everything you've ever thought about slip-stitch knitting. Gorgeous yarn and the right needle can create divine garment that you'll simply love to put on again and again." --Anzula

"Slip-Stitch Knitting reveals the enormous possibilities available when we slide a stitch from one needle to another without bothering to wrap. We owe these designers a debt for collecting and expanding on these multivariant techniques and presenting them to a larger audience." --Vogue Knitting
