This volume of Practical Knitting Stitches contains several hundred stitches new to the Harmony Guide series. There are chapters on Knit and Purl, Slip Stitch, Crossed Stitch and Cables. Each stitch has both written and charted instructions. A clearly illustrated section explains the basic techniques of knitting and how to follow charts. 9 x 12 96 pages These Harmony Guides have been out of print for many years and are getting very hard to find. They are the best resource for patterns I have seen. The pages are slightly yellowed, but other then that the book is in perfect condition.
