A brand new stitch dictionary from the author of the wildly popular, AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary.
KnitOvation includes brand new colorwork motifs to expand knitters' creative possibilities and draw them further into the world of stranded knitting with clever, quirky, and beautiful motifs including botanicals, animals, and geometric patterns. The motifs are accompanied by a selection of accessory and garment designs to illustrate how the motifs can be used, and technical information on new topics including using charts and adding flourishes with duplicate stitch.
More knitters than ever are enjoying colorwork, so now is a fantastic time to give them another tool for their knitting toolbox.

I loved the colors and different patterns shown in this preview of the dictionary!! This knitting guide is so pretty to look at, and I love the pictures of the finished versions.
This book contains helpful guides to creating different patterns with your yarn and knitting projects. Easy enough for beginners to follow.
If you liked Andrea Rangel's book AlterKnit, you'll also enjoy KnitOvation, which offers even more modern colorwork stitch patterns. My favorite is Willowherb, which is a fun repeating flower pattern. Some of the other stitches include additional flowers, leaves, fruit, and geometric patterns. In addition, there are patterns included where you can easily add in your chosen pattern. At the beginning of the book, there is helpful information about choosing yarn and how to use a stitch dictionary. All in all, I would say this is a beneficial addition to any colorwork knitter's repertoire.
I was able to read an early sample of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publisher.
Thank you NetGalley!
I am super excited about this book! It is going to be a great opportunity to extend my knitting knowledge, and I cant wait to try out these patterns. They look so beautiful of the cover.
I enjoyed this preview of knitting stitches. I will definitely be interested in purchasing the book in its entirety. Many good colorwork patterns that I hope to use in my sock patterns.
Thanks so much NetGalley and Penguin Random House for a sneak peek into this fantastic arc!
This may just be a sample, but I can tell this will be full of such helpful information! I'm a knitter and I know the site Interweave very well, and I'm so excited to see the finished product of this! The charts and one hat pattern included are so clear and easy to read. I haven't tried making the hat yet, but it looks great, and is unisex so even better! Definitely going to order this in for my store :D
Having bought many of Andrea's patterns on Ravelry, I was very excited to see this stitch-oanry. Looks straightforward with great motifs to bring to any colorwork project. Will be adding to my knitting library on publication.
Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the ARC.
I'm very excited to dive into the full version of this when it comes out. The preview I have seen makes it clear that Andrea nailed it again. Her innovative colorwork motifs instantly made me want to get my needles out. There are several leaf variations this time, which I'm particularly excited for.
Excited to see the finished product! From the sample given here, I can see that the photos are great quality and the explanations are well written. Colorwork is a more advanced technique, but it seems like this book is written with both beginners an more experienced crafters in mind.
This is a book that any colorwork loving knitter should add to their library. I love how the unique and modern designs can be incorporated into accessories, clothing and home décor. The first chapter is dedicated to talking about what yarn choices are best for colorwork and she gives tips to help you along they way. There are flower, duck, horse, and sock motifs, just to name a few. The charts are clear and appropriate for any knitter who has some basic colorwork experience. Andrea is a wonderful designer. I have been following her and buying her patterns for many years. I will be purchasing this to add to my knitting library.
This was so lovely! There are so many patterns that are easy to follow and I am so looking forward to using these stitches in a variety of projects! My brain is overflowing with ideas. The images are so lovely and I look forward to seeing all the creations that come from folks using this book!
