Stitches by Helga Isager
"In English, 'stitches' refer to both knitting and embroidery and this means that there is no distinction between using a tapestry needle and tapestry yarn or knitting needles and knitting yarn in your craft." So begins Helga Isager's stunning book "Stitches," a collection of patterns for 10 garments and accessories, many of which include optional embellishments done with a tapestry needle after the fact — from a bold interpretation of a logo sweatshirt to a subtle raglan detail.
The 10 knitting patterns include 2 cardigans, 5 pullovers, 1 dress, 1 scarf and 1 hat. Plus tips and how-to's, all beautifully presented. And like her previous book, K (Knit), she's included actual-size swatches for you to compare yours against.
