This guide demonstrates step-by-step how to make all the basic stitches and gives detailed stitch-by-stitch instructions on how to create every sort of pattern. There is guidance on materials and tensions and a colour catalogue of over 700 beautiful patterns and stitches. The knitting and crochet sections begin with basic techniques, progressing to illustrated catalogues of the different stitch patterns such as heavily textured cables and delicate lacy stitches in knitting, or filet crochet and Tunisian patterns in crochet. The embroidery section includes a wide range of beautiful stitches for both decorative and practical purposes, including drawn threadwork, smocking, applique and needlepoint.
