Mastering the art of blending and contrasting different colors in a sweater, bag, or other knitted item is a good way to transform an otherwise ordinary knitted garment or accessory into a thing of outstanding beauty. This new book offers guidance and advice to knitting enthusiasts on every aspect of creating beautiful knitted goods through imaginative uses of color. The authors open by giving readers a clear understanding of color theory, describing warm and cool colors, brights and pastels, tints, tones, and shades. They go on to show how to incorporate stripes or Fair Isle or Intarsia effects in a knitted item to produce stunning results. They also give expert advice on adding decorations, such as knitting with beads or sequins, or creating beautiful edgings in contrasting colors. Detailed instructions are presented for seven colorful projects, which include a contrasting striped bag, a handsome table runner, a beautifully patterned cushion, a pair of vivid multicolored hand warmers, and others. Readers will also find advice on seeking out sources of inspiration and tips on making yarn choices. Approximately 350 color photos.
