Beyond Knit & Purl
is not just for
beginning knitters. Even those who’ve been knitting for years will have an
astonishing number of “ah-ha!” moments inside its pages. As technical
editor, and more importantly, as a teacher, Kate knows where knitters hit
roadblocks and how to overcome them, and she shares her many years of experience
in Beyond Knit and Purl.
Confused about increases or decreases? What’s ease? If you’ve only
knitted dishcloths, are you ready to move on to socks or should you try
something else first? What does “decrease stitches evenly across” actually
mean in practice? Do you need some Dirty Secrets or Knitterly Advice?
(there are plenty of both scattered throughout the book’s pages). Or do
you need some help choosing the right pattern for you? This and much, much
more are in the book.
Each chapter is dedicated to a technique from shaping, knitting in the round, lace to cables and colorwork and Chapter 8 is dedicated entirely to sock knitting! It takes you through The Anatomy of a Sock, Top Down Construction, Toe Up Construction, Needle Choices and Sock Yarn selection. Plus the book includes 6 sock patterns and a Christmas Stocking pattern.
The amazing how-to photos by Caro
Splityarn Sheridan clearly demonstrate techniques so
you can follow along as needed, and there are great patterns spread throughout
to support the educational material ranging from ultra-simple dishcloths up to
lace shawls, socks and other garments. Beyond Knit & Purl
includes 24 Kate Atherley patterns, from socks to baby garments, accessories and
