Publisher Comments:

World-renowned brioche knitting expert Nancy Marchant takes this versatile European stitchand#8212;which creates a luxurious, reversible ribbed fabricand#8212;to a new level! In her groundbreaking collection, Marchant works brioche in two colors, forming graceful, undulating textures with increases and decreases. She explains everything from how to hold the yarn and cast on (offering multiple options) to creating the basic fabric and reading two-color charts. The stitch library presents 75 all-new patterns, and there are an additional 12 in luscious shawl and scarf projects.

Filled with 85 all-new stitch patterns for creating texture in fabric, Drysdale's innovative collection takes this hot new needlework craze to the next level. Advanced beginners and intermediates can try their hand at everything from cables, lace, and relief stitches to circles, triangles, and never-before-seen interpretations, along with 25 patterns for beautiful garments, fashion accessories, baby gifts, and home dand#233;cor projects.

One of today's hottest knitting trends is entrelac, a modular technique that results in striking basketwork designs of rows within rows and interlocking diamond patterns. Using only simple knit and purl stitches, knitters can create eye-catching pieces with incredible texture. Entrelac introduces both the history and how-to of this fun style, along with 20 patterns for a variety of garments, home décor items, and baby accessories.
