Barbara G. Walker is the queen of stitch patterns.  There is nary a knitter who does not know of, love, or own copies of her  A Treasury of Knitting Patterns books.  In addition to collecting and documenting thousands of patterns handed down, Barbara has an impressive body of stitch pattern work herself.  Saluting this stitch maven, the creators of The Art of Knitting DVDs, have created this in-depth collection of video stitch alongs.  Preceeded by a quick interview with the stitch master herself, the DVD contains step by step video, charted, and written instructions.  Each line of the stitch pattern is presented by a master knitter.  The charted pattern line is at the bottom of the screen as you watch the knitter demonstrate how to complete each line in the pattern.  Amazingly thorough, this DVD would make a WONDERFUL gift for the new knitter or the knitter looking to try new techniques.  With over 3 1/2 hrs of instruction, any knitter is sure to master these stitches very quickly.  This is the perfect companion to the Barbara G. Walker A Treasury of Knitting Patterns books.

TriCoast Studios has graciously donated a signed copy (signed by Barbara G. Walker herself!) of Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara G. Walker!  To enter, please follow the proceeding instructions from the Rafflecopter Widget!

  14. Living in the country my LYS is not so local. Our high speed is not so high which means u tube only in knit emergencies. It would be awesome to have an electronic teacher I can turn to on my own time and bolster my skills.
