"Stitch 'n Bitch" is an irreverent, witty, guide to knitting which became a "New York Times" bestseller and made it possible to use the words 'hip' and 'knit' in the same sentence. Not only is she hip, but she is also funny; Stoller's sass will have you laughing over your knit and purl stitches.
It’s the essential guide for chicks with sticks—from the tools of the trade to the knitty-gritty of techniques and patterns, all with easy-to-follow step-by-step illustrated techniques:
• Stockinette stitch, rib stitch, seed stitch. Increasing and decreasing. All the bells and whistles: fringes, tassels, cables, intarsia, crab stitch, and Fair Isle.
• Plus the stitch doctor’s own special bag of tricks and how to hook up with other knitters.
• After the how-to comes the why-to: forty hip, stylish patterns, as good for beginners as they are for purly pros.
