Increase Decrease.

Here is a book for every knitter: Judith Durant’s Increase Decrease.


Increase Decrease is a compendium of ways to add and subtract stitches in knitting, a technique that is essential in shaping sleeve caps, thumb and heel gussets, the crowns of hats, and so much more.


Though increasing and decreasing are probably the first thing one learns after mastering knitting and purling, you’ll be surprised at how very many ways there are to do it. In Increase Decrease, Judith Durant shows you how and tells you why.



Increase Decrease comes from Storey Publishing, the wonderful people who brought us Leslie Ann Bestor’s popular Cast On Bind Off. These are both excellent reference books, essential for a thoughtful knitter’s resource library. They are also both notably spiral-bound, allowing the book to lie flat in your lap as you grapple with a new technique, needles in hand.


Come by the shop to stock your own knitter’s resource library, and come during July to do it at a 15% discount! See you there.


Just a reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, returns, or special orders. Thanks!
