    1. I'll just copy what I wrote for The Knitting All Around Stitch Dictionary: 150 new stitch patterns to knit top down, bottom up, back and forth & in the round because the two books are equally fascinating and essential:This is a must-have book for all knitters contemplating their stash and wondering - what in the world will I do with all of this yarn? Pick a skein or two or six, pick a stitch pattern, decide if you want to knit flat (from the top or bottom) or in-the-round (from the top or bo [...]

    2. Great book, but kindle version needs a bit moreThis book does a great job with patterns knitted from the bottom up, top down, or in the round. It offers both charts and written patterns. It is very well organized with a project on each section to play with a new pattern. The one thing I felt was missing was a good and bad place to use each pattern. In the opening for each section it would say something like some patterns stretch well while others like this pattern on this page do not. But I’d [...]

    3. I looked through this book online on and put it on my Good Reads page "To-Read" list. This is my number 1 top of the wishlist! I think I'm ready for this book and I want this book! I'm gonna see if my local Library has it to borrow until I can fit the acquisition into my budget.UPDATE: June 22, 2014my local library doesn't have it soI guess I need to tell everyone I want it and if no one gets it for me then I guess I will start setting aside a little each month ybe there's a kindle version? hmm [...]

    4. Heard her on Marly Bird's podcast, was skeptical. Confirmed - for those too lazy to figure it out themselves. Thought would be interesting to see her deal with lace or cable patterns, but she doesn't do all-over cables. Funny thing, all swatches shown are flat. Some have all four "options", some don't. Basically very simple stitch dictionary with a few projects scattered. Spiral-bound, which is handy. Some charted stitches. Not worth it if already have stitch dictionaries.

    5. I love seeing some new patterns! The photos are great and the diagrams for both flat and round knitting are excellent. I haven't actually tried working any of the patterns, so I am giving a 4 star review rather than 5.

    6. This book is fascinating with the idea of being able to knit these stitches any way! The stitches run the gamut from simple to complex, the illustrations are wonderful and the explanations are concise and make sense. Now I just have to pick a pattern so I can start making an item!

    7. This is a straight forward stitch dictionary but nice. This is a good one also for beginning knitters that want to broaden their stitch working.

    8. My new favorite stitch dictionary! Not only is it the prettiest one around, but it's so easy to use with a bazillion great options that are also converted for knitting in the round.

    9. This is a beautiful book to look at, but the format is very large for the amount of content. Not so useful.
