This is the book that put slip-stitch knitting into the knitting history books. Walker coined the term mosaic knitting, and her definitive book on the subject was first published in 1976. This revised edition includes 116 new charted mosaic designs to complement the 157 charted designs featured in the original edition. Large-scale black-and-white charts, each with an accompanying knitted sample of the design, leave the reader to choose appropriate colors. This is not a project book but one that will appeal to the adventurous knitter and knitwear designer. Highly recommended for large public libraries and textile collections.?JZ

Good no-frills directions for a multitude of slip-stitch designs. Some of the squares on the covers are too swastika-like but most are attractive.Published 1 month ago by Bun-Bun Baxter

It takes a careful reading of the information at the beginning of the book to interpret the charts correctly. After that, though, it's a goldmine.Published 5 months ago by LeeAnn Voisinet
