Editorial Reviews

Knitter's Review
This year Nordic designer Vivian Høxbro became the international poster-child for domino knitting.... It's a deceptively simple technique with stunning visual results.
Library Journal
Domino knitting is a type of "modular knitting," with knitted squares and strips building on one another to form a larger piece-just as in the game dominoes are placed next to one another to create a larger whole. Fun, eminently portable, and requiring nothing more than a knowledge of the basic knit and purl stitches, this technique has been popularized in recent years by Horst Schultz, whose Patchwork Knitting first attracted Hmxbro to the craft. While inspirational, Schultz's book is not the best choice for neophytes. Knitters wishing to master this technique would be well advised to work through this little book instead. A Danish knitwear designer with an obvious knack for teaching, Hmxbro instructs through a series of colorful potholder projects. Teaching sessions are followed by a number of projects using the technique and include both garments and accessories for the home. Recommended for large public libraries and textile collections.
