Drawing inspiration from couture fabrics, Jean Frost developed multiple variations of stitches in her book Stitches for Tailored Knits — adding additional colors, fibers, or yarn that dramatically transform the fabric. This multi-color, multi-yarn custom approach also makes for great stash knitting.
The stitches are arranged in families that indicate the type of woven material they imitate—houndstooth, quilted stitch, herringbone, basketweave, twill, chevron, tweed, and fabric stitch. Full-sized images of swatches are accompanied by instructions in charts and words that introduce the multiple stitches.
