    Help! I want this pattern so bad, so I checked the book out of my local library (A Treasury of Knitting Patterns). But the pattern wasn’t in there! What am I missing? How can I get this pattern?

  8. nicole Says:

    It’s in the second Treasury.. There’s actually 4 books in that series ;-) But check out the patterns in the book you got, I’m sure you’ll find a few worth memorising ;-)

  9. Soni Says:

    Thanks! I’ll see if the library has it. I’m trying to recreate a cardigan (see links), that I saw on the last episode of Foyle’s War, and Fireworks is the closest stitch pattern I’ve seen to how the piece is made. If you know of a pattern that’s a closer match, please let me know, since I’m going to have to finagle the Fireworks pattern and knit a few swatches before I figure out how to make it look like the sweater.
