Knitters: It's time to take it to the next level. And who better than Debbie Stoller to show you how. The expert knitter and gifted, edgy author who introduced knitting to a new generation with her New York Times bestseller, Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook , now shows her readers how to do more--lots more.

Stitch 'n Bitch Superstar Knitting is the only knitter's handbook to teach the full array of advanced knitting techniques and skills, such as double-knitting, knitting lace, complicated color work, beading, and more. Writing with the clarity that makes her such an effective teacher, and the attitude that got her dubbed "knitting superstar" ( San Francisco Chronicle ), Stoller explains how to "knit by the numbers;" get creative with stripes; embellish with crochet, beading, and I-cords; how to make cable patterns; and how to use color forms. There's also a whole section on DIY--which gives a tutorial on creating your own knitting patterns.

And then the brilliant icing on the cake--41 cool, funky, and fabulous patterns from Debbie and the Stitch 'n Bitch community: a fluttery Rococco Shawl, Cap Sleeve Lattice Sweater, Jackie-O sequined cardigan, Empire Strikes Back dress, the adorable Button It children's sweater with changeable animal patches. Plus sexy stockings, stylish handbags, blankets, scarves, and more, all photographed in full-color.

This is another good book of technique written in clear language, and presented with a sense of humour. Like the first *Stitch 'n Bitch* book, the indexing is well done, making it easy to look up a specific technique quickly if you happen to have hit a snarly spot in a pattern. There are some more advanced techniques covered here, as well as some attractive patterns that make use of them. All in all, you can pick this book up as a quick technique reference, for the patterns, or just to read up on techniques you may not have tried yet.
