More Hand Manipulated Stitches, the long-awaited sequel to Hand Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters, explores and explains every facet of bridging stitches on a knitting machine. Through photographs and detailed, step-by-step directions, knitters will learn to control individual needles (or groups of needles) in a single row which allows: changing stitch size midrow, knitting extra rows on specific needles, or making incredible use of the free yarn to add special details and textures. Bridging offers the means to take full advantage of any knitting machine's capabilities. The book is equally divided between clear, concise technical explanations and practical patterns for projects that include sweaters, scarves, hats and purses.
