"Reversible Knitting" is a compendium of 50 totally new reversible stitch patterns (for 100 different looks), plus 21 reversible projects designed by the author as well as 12 additional top knitwear designers, including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Teva Durham (all STC authors), Pam Allen, Wenlan Chia, Cat Bordhi, Debbie New and Lily Chin. 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 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 Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan and Teva Durham.
Rounding out the book are in-depth instructions for the specialised techniques required for reversible work.
