Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Teacher and knitwear designer Melville (Sally Melville Styles) here outlines the effects of color on knitting, illustrating her points with photos of knitted garments and explaining how to relate inspiration from a variety of sources to the color wheel. Major sections of the book deal with such topics as using variegated yarns to best advantage and working with stripes. The more than 40 patterns for women, men, and children offer the beginning knitter the opportunity to transition to more ambitious projects. Featuring marvelous photography, crisp layout, and a user-friendly format, this book should find a welcome place in all knitting collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

I took my first "Intro. to Color" knitting class in the Fall and this book was recommended. I also have Sally Melville's, "The Knit Stitch", book which I refer to again and again. Her instructions are very clear and concise. I will be taking another "Color 101" class in January and I am sure this book will be another great reference. Will be purchasing Sally's "The Purl Stitch" in the future.
