Each style is then provided in 15 sizes ranging from toddler to large adult, then further divided into six possible gauges: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 stitches per inch combining for 90 options for each of the six styles, or 540 patterns in all. The cardigan and neckline variations make for more than 1,000 patterns. Detailed schematics for finished dimensions are included, along with a glossary of techniques and a chapter on design considerations.

  • Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave (2007 release) with Anne Merrow
    Why do knitters love socks? Socks are portable, useful, fairly quick to knit, and universally wearable. In Favorite Socks, Interweaveoffers 25 beautiful and timeless sock patterns for every occasion in a range of techniques, traditions, and designs. Many of these patterns have become unavailable as original issues of Interweave Knits went out-of-print–now they are handily bound together in this inspired collection. The adventurous knitter will find a classic, varied compilation of socks from renowned sock designers including Nancy Bush, Evelyn Clark, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, and more.

    Patterns have comprehensive instructions for the various techniques used. Highlights include a tutorial for knitting socks on two circular needles and instructions for making resoleable socks. You’ll even find 6 brand-new “classics” for those avid knitters who may have every issue of Knits since 1996.

    It’s all here: the traditional cuff-down, toe-up, heel and instep knitted separately; ribs, cables, lace, color patterns; delicate and elegant socks, sturdy and functional socks; socks for men and women, every season, every foot—and any knitter.

  • Lace Style: Traditional to Innovative, 21 Inspired Designs to Knit (2007 release) with Pam Allen
    From runways to department stores, lace is everywhere and knitters are picking up their needles to chase the trend. Lace Style takes a fresh approach to this classic theme by combining solid techniques with 20+ contemporary projects.

    Following the success of Scarf Style and Wrap Style—with more than 100,000 copies sold— we’ve selected a stunning collection of quick knits that take a modern twist on a traditional pattern. Accomplished designers including Vëronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, Shirley Paden and Michele Rose Orne will inspire with patterns ranging from scarves, shawls, hats, sweaters, dresses, and more.

    Revel in ways to use lace as allover patterns, trims and edgings, and inserts. Innovative designs include a lace pattern typically used for baby wear boldly translated into a striking woman’s scalloped jacket, a delicate lace edging used to accent a featherlight lingerie dress, a chic skirt made lacy with intentionally dropped stitches, a wide-brim garden hat with a decidedly vintage feel, a sophisticated bracelet knitted from fine silver wire, and much more.

    Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions and lavish lifestyle photographs with plenty of detail shots to keep readers inspired. A special design chapter demystifies the elements of knitted lace, and details several ways to achieve lacy effects. It also provides key pointers on how to incorporate lace motifs into other patterns and tips to ensure success.

    Whether you’re an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or a beginner trying lace knitting for the first time, Lace Style has everything you need to knit lace with confidence.
