Sheeps Ahoy

Knit One, Knit All

Elizabeth Zimmermann fans love the fact that we have one more book of designs from this clever and innovative dame of the knitting world.  Knit One, Knit All focusses on garter stitch (knit each row).  Most of the designs in this book are new to knitters.  Some of the designs also include some intriguing and unique construction techniques.  Designs include sweaters, socks, coats, vests, jackets, gloves, etc.

In Elizabeth's own words:

One can only cite the elegant appearance of Garter stitch.  It forms beautiful crinkly ridges, which are handsome in themselves... I like to think that the very first knitter, doodling with sticks and sinews at the sunny entrance to his cave, or peering at his knitting by the flickering firelight, doodled with, or peered at, Garter stitch; the bread and cheese of knitting, the basic stitch - surely the prototype.
