reversible knits

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Well, this day sort of got away from me.  With it being a holiday and no school we packed appointments and obligations in to what felt like every minute.  Feeling pretty accomplished.  Still need to schedule those flu shots.  
Have you seen this book?  Heard the buzz about it?  There are parts of it that I found extremely fascinating.  I mean, I know how to make two sides look the same.  Heck, garter does that.  Seed stitch does that.  Even ribbing.  
But there are techniques in this books that make really cool "wrong" sides... so both are "right" sides.  Pretty special, I'd say.  
It won't take an experienced knitter to catch on to reversible knitting.  Just the basics are needed.  How to knit, how to purl, how to increase and decrease and of course, casting on and binding off.  
There are shrugs, throws, hats, scarves and other projects designed to showcase their reversibility.  And six key techniques to show you how.  Iris Schreier didn't leave out a detail.  Right down to fixing those darn mistakes.  (THAT was my biggest problem when I was first learning how to knit.)

Sterling publishing would like to give away a copy of Reversible Knits to TWO of my readers.   If interested, please leave a comment here before Monday, September 9 at 5pm EST and I will have the random generator choose TWO names!

Have a really great weekend.

  21. It's fun to figure out reversible, "two-faced" stitch combinations when knitting scarves. The book you're going to give away looks intriguing.

    I love using reversible stitches for scarves because it is impossible to wear a scarf without the "wrong" side showing somewhere. But my options have been limited. This book sounds like it opens up a whole new slew of choices.
