Knitters: It's time to take it to the next level. And who better than Debbie Stoller to show you how. The expert knitter and gifted, edgy author who introduced knitting to a new generation with her New York Times bestseller, Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook, now shows her readers how to do more-lots more.

Stitch 'n Bitch Superstar Knitting is the only knitter's handbook to teach the full array of advanced knitting techniques and skills, such as double-knitting, knitting lace, complicated color work, beading, and more. Writing with the clarity that makes her such an effective teacher, and the attitude that got her dubbed knitting superstar (San Francisco Chronicle), Stoller explains how to knit by the numbers; get creative with stripes; embellish with crochet, beading, and I-cords; how to make cable patterns; and how to use color forms. There's also a whole section on DIY — which gives a tutorial on creating your own knitting patterns.

And then the brilliant icing on the cake — 41 cool, funky, and fabulous patterns from Debbie and the Stitch 'n Bitch community: a fluttery Rococco Shawl, Cap Sleeve Lattice Sweater, Jackie-O sequined cardigan, Empire Strikes Back dress, the adorable Button It children's sweater with changeable animal patches. Plus sexy stockings, stylish handbags, blankets, scarves, and more, all photographed in full-color.

Synopsis:

Writing with the clarity that makes her such an effective teacher and the attitude that got her dubbed "knitting superstar" (San Francisco Chronicle), Stoller gives readers the tools and techniques to create cool designs that put a whole new spin on knitting.

Synopsis:

Take your knitting to the next level! Learn intarsia knitting in a single sitting. Work Fair Isle with a smile.  Knit lace with grace, and don't freak when it's time to steek. Plus cable, double knitting, beading, embroidery, how to work short rows, and useful cast-ons, bind-offs, increases and decreases.

Debbie Stoller's easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions lead you through 20 advanced techniques, and you'll discover how to create your very own patterns for different kinds of sweaters, including drop shoulder, raglan sleeve, circular yoke, and even the notorious set-in sleeve.

After that, get your knit on with 41 gorgeous, inspired patterns that make use of all your newfound skills.
