I recently received Vogue Knitting, Stitchionary 6 – Edgings from Sixth and Spring Books for review.
This book is the sixth installment in Stitchionary series that provides a collection of more than 200 edgings drawn from the Vogue Knitting archives. Arranged in seven chapters, knitters will find very well written and charted instructions and more than 150 color photographs of swatches for each design element.
I must applaud Vogue Knitting on the last section of the book that is dedicated to crochet. For me personally, I love combining knitting with crochet, especially when using it for an edging. Crochet offers the unique ability to provide just the right about of “lace” in a manner that knitted edges often lack. Its quick, neat and gives a “finished” look to any knitted garment.
I can say that a few edging designs look familiar and are even very similar to The Edge Series by Nicky Epstein, but all in all, this is a good book for knitters of all levels that can be used as a source guide for finishing off in type of garment with a beautiful edging.
Here’s what you’ll find inside:
- Chapter 1: Ribs
- Chapter 2: Texture
- Chapter 3: Cables
- Chapter 4: Lace
- Chapter 5: Color
- Chapter 6: Unusual
- Chapter 7: Crochet
