    • Another well-done work by Barbara Walker! Her facility with knitting concepts and styles is unparalleled. This volume of the Treasury series is a little too advanced for a novice such as myself; however, it is another one I'll be getting for my collection and will revisit as my experience & ability grows. Highly recommended for knitting lovers!


    • This isn't really a pattern book, it's a stitch book, meaning it gives you the patterns for stitches you can incorporate into whatever you are knitting. The stitch patterns in here are fabulous and unlike most stitch books, there are many that are shown in sample garments so you get an idea of what the look like on a larger scale. There are lace, cable and garter stitch patterns. There is even a section on mosaic patterns, generally omitted from stitch libraries. The drawbacks are that it's all [...]


    • I started at the tail of this set, simply because there were very few copies left and I wanted to be certain I didn't miss out!As other reviewers have said, this is more a collection of different stitch patterns, with some suggestions on how they could be used. Color plates would have been nice, especially for the mosaic section, but everything seems clear enough.

    • I reserved all four books from my library, not knowing what to expect. When I picked them up I was completely overwhelmed! They were not not booklets or readers, but detailed reference books every knitter should have.I was, and am, still overwhelmed. The information included is amazing, and I can't wait to start adding what I learned to my knitting.


    • While the charted designs are, in my opinion, not as attractive or usable as those in the previous volumes, Walker's notes on combining motifs, shaping, and creating seamless items are a valuable resource. the first chapter on garter stitch geometry was especially thought-provoking.




    • This and the 3 other Knitting Treasuries should really be bought together. As far as I can tell, there isn't a repeat of patterns in the set. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.


    • I love Walker's books. This one explores more of her own designs, which is fun to read because it gives you a window on a designer's process.



    • Good reference, more complicated long stitch patterns / motifs. I love the first two so much more, but I'm glad I have this one too.
