Maybe you’ve only just discovered the art of pine needle basketry, or perhaps you have been coiling for years. In either case, you may not have realized all the possibilities because only a few of the basic stitches are covered in most how-to books and beginning classes. You may be located far from any available instruction, where a book like this can serve as a substitute teacher and valuable reference for many years to come.
This Stitch List covers step-by-step instructions with meticulously detailed illustrations for all of the basic stitches commonly used in pine needle basketry today. The list is further expanded to include more complex stitches, and some of the combinations that can create intricate patterns in pine needle works. Each stitch gets a two-page, full-color spread so that all the information about that stitch is visible at once. This compilation of coiled pine needle basketry stitches is an ideal resource and essential reference for beginners, seasoned coilers, and teachers alike.
