5 Things We Love!

I love a list. I make to-do lists, of course, but I also make lists of my favorite books, wines, songs, inspirational sayings, memories, and of course, knitting patterns.

Here's a list of the Knitting Daily staff's top 5 knitting resources. Man, was it hard to decide. There are so many to choose from, but we finally settled on our top 5 current Interweave products.

I hope you enjoy it our Top 5 List, and please leave a comment below

Twigg Stitch
Book by Vicki Twigg

Hang on to your knitting needles, what you know about reversible knitting is about to totally change! In the beginning, all knitwear designer Vicki Twigg wanted to do was knit a two-colored ribbing without floats. What she ended up creating was an entirely new type of knitting, worked in two colors, that produces a fully reversible fabric with mirrored or completely different sides. It’s truly amazing!

 

Vicki visually walks you through the basics steps of this reversible knitting technique and provides a stitch dictionary of basic to more complex color patterns, textured patterns, and cables. To demonstrate this amazing technique, Vicki shares 10 great projects that range from simple reversible hats, mitts and scarves to reversible lace shawls.
