Review: Up, down, all-around stitch dictionary by Wendy Bernard

This is a fantastic reference for knitters wanting inspiration for their projects. Each stitch pattern is presented in written and charted form, and there are options for flat and circular knitting, depending on your preference or what the pattern calls for.

As if that wasn't enough, the patterns are also offered top-down and bottom-up where appropriate. Never again will you be put off using a heart motif on that top-down yoked sweater, and you can create leaves to your heart's content on that toe-up sock pattern you had your eye on.

Even if you don't have a particular pattern in mind, this is a great resource to browse through.

(There are also a range of craft groups and activities which take place in Sheffield Libraries. Please see the Sheffield Libraries events page for further details.)
