Barbara Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Walker's three knitting-pattern compendiums (A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and Charted Knitting Designs) have long been considered classics of knitting literature and prime sources of ideas for many knitwear designers.
Now they are all back in print, thanks to Schoolhouse. Walker long ago moved on to other interests, but now she has returned with a fourth treasury. This work combines her long-out-of-print Sampler Knitting with a short autobiography and 82 new texture, cable, and lace patterns.
