Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Abrahams is a British knitwear designer and a design consultant for Rowan Yarns, hence the use of the British term cushions instead of pillows in the title. Her 25 patterns use the pillow as a small canvas on which to experiment with colors, embellishments, and techniques such as cabling. The designs feature the imaginative use of beads and buttons and novel techniques, e.g., creating a striped effect on a denim pillow by painting lines on the knitted fabric with bleach. This work ranges in difficulty from simple, colorful stripes to the detailed "picture knitting" of the patchwork quilt and log cabin pillows. Although all the projects use high-end Rowan yarns, the author provides enough information to enable knowledgeable knitters to substitute other yarns. Recommended for large public libraries and smaller libraries where demand warrants. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
