Overview


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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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

    THE BEST KNITTING BOOK SO FAR

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! Finally a book that is TODAY, not 80's, 60's or 1492! The patterns are clear. The embellishments ar insightful and out of the ordinary. The best part is the way it is explained on how to create your own patterns & adding graphic images to your knitting. I LOVE IT! As an artist that is looking to incorporate modern desing into an age old art, this book TOTALLY put a new twist into knitting! I bought it SPECIFICALLY for the Audrey Hepburn pattern.... It is actually for the design to be applied to a store bought sweater. I wish I had known, but would have bought it anyway. I might even buy another so I have a spare...just in case. I'm in love and so inspired.
