Reviews - What do customers think about The Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume Three: Color Knitting: The Ultimate Stitch Dictionary from the Editors of Vogue Knitting Magazine (Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Series)?
Eye Candy Stitch Libraries Feb 25, 2007
The series of Vogue Stitch Libraries are by no means intended to be as complete as Barbara Walkers or probably even the Harmony guides. However, their production values are SOOOOOOO much better that I find myself going to these in order to get a better view and more inspiration than the Walker or Harmony guides. If you can only afford one set of stitch dictionaries, these probably wouldn't be it. However, if you are a stitch pattern junky like me, these are definately a good set to add to your collection.
Mere Recycling Feb 20, 2007
Hardly comprehensive. As far as I can tell, all of the patterns are just recycled from designs in the Vogue Knitting Magazine during the 80's and 90's, but if you're entirely new to this knitting thing, it serves to demonstrate how colour works in knitting, in the broadest sense. A real disappointment after the first two decent volumes in the series.
a little lacking Jan 18, 2007
While this is a very comprehensive collection of color patterns, I would not say that it is the COMPLETE resource. As far as I can tell, the how-to section includes just 2 pages that describe yarn-overs, increases and decreases.
Vogue should be ashamed of themselves to not include a discussion of stranding and weaving techniques, or even the simple instructions of crossing over yarns in jacquard and intarsia so as to not have a hole in the finished work.
Must have book for knitters Jan 18, 2007
Volume three of the Vogue series is just as great as the first two. Clear, well written instructions make these books a must have to any knitters book collection.
Color is the thing ... Nov 29, 2006
Collecting together more than 200 color knitting patterns from the pages of Vogue Knitting magazine, Color Knitting is the third volume in the Vogue Knitting Stitchionary series. Calling these volumes the "ultimate stitch dictionary," the editors of Vogue Knitting magazine have selected a range of designs sure to challenge and inspire knitters of all skill levels. For each pattern, a large sample swatch is shown; some in quite unusual color choices.
Color Knitting is made up of five chapters: Two Color, Fair Isle/Multicolor, Intarsia/Motifs, Adding Texture, and Slip Stitch. In each chapter the patterns are organized from easiest to hardest. The patterns in the first three chapters are presented as graphs only. The final two sections, which incorporate both stitch patterns as well as color, are presented with both charts and written instructions.
Color, perhaps more than any other element of design, is subjective. Everyone has preferred colors, and the colors in which a design is shown can lead one to reject it without assessing the pattern itself. To provide an overall flow to the stitch dictionary, the editors have presented each chapter in a different palette. For this to be a useful volume, knitters must use it as a starting point, find their own preferred color scheme and be creative.
