A traditional knitting technique gets a new and easier spin, so that even beginners can master the process. Just dip into this comprehensive course, with themed tutorials--each with handy practice exercises--as well as simple instructions, charts, and 29 fabulous projects. Modular knitting is a bit like a game: you create designs in the same way you'd work a jigsaw puzzle--piece by piece. Start by completing one square, cube, or diamond, and then build on that by knitting additional basic figures and forms. Although the finished product looks complex, with its variety of shape and color changes, it's actually not hard at all. Start with a very easy patchwork square pillow, and move onto the rounded market bag, triangle hat, and zigzag scarf.

Crafters Choice Book Club SelectionFrom the Inside Flap:
In Modular Knits Iris Schreier introduces her revolutionary new techniques that greatly simplify creating triangles, diamonds, squares, and other project designs. Using the traditional modular method, you finish a shape, bind it off, cut the yarn, pick up stitches, and then knit a new shape into the old one to expand the garment. Schreier, in this new method, shows you how to knit shapes continuously without cutting yarn and picking up stitches. Be warned...these techniques are addictive! The chapters introduce various knitted shapes and include instructions for knitting practice swatches before starting on the projects that follow. Once you're comfortable with the techniques, or if you're already a proficient knitter, you can try any of the intermediate or advanced projects that are part of the book's four experience levels. The results are spectacular when you move beyond the straight lines often found in knitwear, and work with unusual crossings and intersections, vertical and horizontal lines, and other distinctive patterns.
