  1. Knit One Knit All - Elizabeth Zimmermann's Garter Stitch Designs

    One of Elizabeth Zimmermann's dreams was to publish a book of her Garter stitch designs, and what a book it is! As we looked through Elizabeth's Garter stitch designs in preparing the book, we found a wealth of material, much of it little known or unpublished. Further, we were intrigued and excited by the unique construction of these new designs (from the mind that created the classic Baby Surprise Jacket). You will find sweaters, coats, jackets, and vests for adults and kids; multiple baby garments; plus a wonderful array of small projects including sideways gloves and socks, several brimmed hats, an ingenious pattern for knitted clogs and more. Hardcover. Download Meg's Stocking-Stitch Version of the Icelandic Overblouse for free.
