Convenient Stitch Guide Jan. 7 2009
By M. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
I received this as a Christmas gift and love it. The only thing that would make it perfect would be to include the basic stitches as well. As a beginner knitter, I sometimes forget which is garter! I love that they are cards and you can take one out and with you if need be. I would recommend this set, a very nice gift idea. ;0)

Stitch Cards very clever Oct. 29 2010
By Marge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards
The Harmony Guides: 101 Stitches to Knit > is a very nice addition to your knitting library. There are, as you might imagine, 101 individual cards detailing 101 different stitches, plus an index and chart key, and a fold out card with knitting basics. The cards are all contained in a flip-top box and color coded by type of stitch, purple cards for knit/purl combinations, green for cables & arans, and pink for lace & eyelets. The front of each card is a large very clear picture of the pattern stitch and the back of each card has both a chart and written instructions.

I have been a Barbara Walker, Treasury of Knitted Patterns fan for a long time, have hand charted a lot of the patterns from there, but having this set with both the written and charted instructions is a real find. The Walker books are much more extensive and I hope Interweave puts out a "101 More Stitches to Knit" set of cards soon, but this set will be just fine for now.

Stitch pattern books are a great resource when you have a plain vanilla pattern and want to add a little pizzazz to the garment or project. Stitch pattern collections are also a great learning tool if you want to experiment with stitches, and the swatches you make can eventually become an afghan, pillow, scarf or just a record of your knitting progress. This particular collection of cards have 101 patterns to choose from and that is a great start.

The pros of this set are the great (big and very clear) pictures and the written and charted patterns. The cards are 16 cm. tall by 12 cm. wide or 6 1/4" tall by 4 3/4" wide. They are stiff and easy to work from since they are individual cards, unlike a book that you work from that keeps closing. The only cons is that there are only 101 of them and there is no difficulty rated noted for each pattern.

As a beginning knitter I find the cards mostly helpful in learning and making new stitches.

Useful, Lovely Sept. 7 2010
By T.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards
Interweave created a useful resource with this set of convenient-to-carry cards. While this product certainly doesn't serve as a comprehensive stitch dictionary (it lacks many basic stitches), it is a beautiful and portable resource for some truly elegant stitch patterns.

The stitches featured in this set fall into three categories based on the techniques used to create them: knits & purls, cables & arans, and laced/openwork stitches. The patterns are clearly written, diagrams easy to understand, and stitches are all easily adaptable to whatever projects you are working on. The explanation of basic techniques in the front booklet is written more as a refresher reference than a definitive guide, so I do recommend that first-time knitters tackle a few projects first. Still, the stitches will appeal to knitters of all skill levels with their lovely simplicity yet intricate looks.

The set fits nicely into my rather small knitting bag and I love that I can just take the card out that I'm working with and stick it in my purse or project bag. Overall, this may not be an essential buy, but it's certainly a nice treat or a perfect gift for a knitter of any skill level.
Enjoy this collection of stitches for any knitter. Dec 25 2013
