25 clever and unique graphic knitting patterns and designs for young knitters

Graphic knits have a long history, and this type of knitting is quite popular though typically, the designs have been based on traditional old style motifs like snowflakes, leaves, and flowers. This book gives a growing, younger, experimental audience of knitters a great resource of stylish, contemporary graphics, and shows them how to integrate patterns into knitted sweaters, tanks, bags, hats, legwarmers, and more. The book will show how you can convert any design an 8 ball, a palm tree, an Elvis, a heart with an arrow into a knitting pattern, and translate it into a project. The book covers basic techniques, stripes, intarsia, fair isle, duplicate stitch, embroidery and embellishments, and includes a gallery of graphs for cool projects.

About the Author:

Rochelle Bourgault works in publishing, is a freelance writer, and an all-around crafty gal. She graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. She attempted her first knitting project at the age of eight, and has come a long way from that first ill-fated slipper. Rochelle lives in Cambridge, MA.

Review:

This book is all about using color-lots of it. Knitters Bourgault and Evans cover four principal methods of working with color in knitting: stripes, intarsia (picture knitting), Fair Isle (stranding different colors across the row), and surface embellishment. They illustrate these methods with 25 "teaching pieces." Budding graphic knitwear designers will appreciate the sections devoted to embellishment ideas, converting photos to graphic knits, and design and pattern sources, while knitters with basic skills will be able to take their craft to a new creative level. An excellent choice for large public libraries and art textile collections. - Library Journal December, 2006
