Knitting knowledge has traditionally been passed on directly from one generation to another. In recent years, a renewed interest in knitting has blossomed and many young knitters are discovering that this craft can be used to create very fashionable garments. Knitting can become a very enjoyable activity which, as well as being useful and highly creative, has an extraordinarily therapeutic value. The Knitting Stitch Bible contains a broad range of designs in seven different types of knitting, and the book is structured to meet the needs of all knitters, from beginners to the more accomplished.

The Knitting Stitch Bible is a comprehensive gallery of more than 250 stitches ranging from the easiest purl stitch to the most complex intarsia pattern. Yarns, needles, ball bands, and and other equipment are explained in detail, with guided instructions on purchasing. Stitches like the knit and purl, rib, cable, bobble, lace, fair isle, and intarsia stitches are all explained with photographs and charts to guide knitters of all levels. Abbreviations are defined in the index, and chart symbols are explained in detail to make it easy to follow along.
