Publisher Comments:

For over 25 years, knitters have relied on premium-quality yarns and patterns from Classic Elite, one of the country's most respected leaders in the knitting industry. Now, Classic Elite Knits gathers a wide variety of their very best designs in one superbly packaged collection. One hundred different, easy-to-follow patterns are included for such essentials as sweaters, hats, and gloves for women, children, and men, as well as accessories such as bags, purses, and scarves. Completely contemporary but crafted to remain stylish for years to come, the patterns are presented in myriad sizes and spotlight the work of such beloved designers as Melissa Leapman, Annie Modesitt, Michele Rose Orne, and Kathy Zimmerman. And the book will appeal to all skill levels: beginners and intermediates will be challenged to expand their repertoires while experts will find plenty of patterns to keep their fingers happy.

Synopsis:

Welcome to Kathleen Taylor's latest knitting extravaganza - a sock party in a book! The author of the best-selling Knit One, Felt Too and I Heart Felt is back with everything you ever wanted to know about socks, with 75 patterns to prove it. The Big Book of Socks is chock full of Kathleen Taylor's fun and fabulous designs for knitters of all ages and skill levels. There's something for everyone from stripes to cables to lace to intarsia and Fair Isle. You'll find funky toe-socks, snowflake house socks, booties, Christmas stockings, beaded socks, and many, many more. Taylor's instructions are a breeze to follow and she includes a special section that gives three different approaches to heel and toe construction. Each pattern contains sizing for children, women, and men, plus the book is packed with technique tips and information on selecting yarn and needles.

Synopsis:

Bestselling knitwear designer Taylor walks knitters of all levels through the Fair Isle knitting technique. With Taylor's simple patterns and large, easy-to-follow charts, the projects yield delightfully vibrant results. Includes 30 designs for sweaters, socks, mittens, and more.

Synopsis:

Why "fearless"? In the past, knitters have considered Fair Isle knitting, or stranded knitting as it's also known, to be an advanced style that involves the frightening task of taking scissors to your hard-won work. As intimidating as this may seem, the cutting process, or steeking, is actually not something to worry about. In "Fearless Fair Isle Knitting," best-selling knitwear designer Kathleen Taylor walks knitters of all levels through the technique. With Taylor's simple patterns and large, easy-to-follow charts, the projects yield delightfully vibrant results. The 30 stunning designs, which represent Taylor's updates on classic Fair Isle motifs, include sweaters, socks, dresses, vests, mittens, hats, and bags. With this book, Fair Isle knitting has become more accessible than ever — and serious knitters will agree... that's a beautiful thing.
