Sampler knitting not only presents 100 new and original designs but explains how they can be combined to make scarves, capes, coats, bags, pillows, hangings, mats, afghans, etc. The basic principle is to work in small units, each a different pattern, which can be made in a series of squares, hexagons, octagons, pinwheels or stripes. This is a very decorative form of knitting as it presents interesting combinations of patterns and/or colors in a single article. It never becomes tedious because of the constant changes. Although it has a novel approach, this book can be readily used by beginners, while experienced knitters will find it a stepping stone to really creative work.
Barbara Walker is one of the most skilled, inventive, and productive knitters of the last 50 years and this classic work is a must in every serious knitter's library.
