Book One is dedicated to the creative knitters of the past and the creative knitters of the future and includes chapters on Knit-Purl Combinations, Ribbings, Color-change patterns, Slip-stitch patterns, Twist Stitch patterns, Fancy Texture Patterns, Patterns make with Yarn-over stitches, Eyelet patterns, Lace, Cables, and Cable Stitch patterns. All of this in ONE book! and to think that someone actually got this Treasure for $10.00! If you do a search today you'll find that it has increased in value substantially . . but it is STILL worth the investment.
Book Two was published in 1970 and was $15.00, probably due in part to the addition of color pictures sprinkled throughout. The dedication reads: To the Further enrichment of a beloved craft this book is hopefully dedicated. It is almost 400 pages long and is filled with many of the same chapter titles but completely DIFFERENT examples. It also includes a wonderful chapter on Mosaic patterns as well as Lace Panels and Insertions, Borders and one on Edgings. so of COURSE, it must be included in the my "collection" of reference books!
