Overview

Beloved knitwear designer Connie Chang Chinchio presents for the first time a complete collection of twenty brand-new designs.

Knitters know Connie Chang Chinchio's wildly popular patterns from Knitscene and Interweave Knits and will be clamoring for this book of original projects. Textured Stitches brings her trademark combination of simple knitting with lovely patterned stitches to flattering, wearable garments and accessories. The patterns are fun to knit, mixing quick and easy stockinette stitch with more involved stitch patterns like lattice, knitted pleats, cables, twisted stitches, and ribbing. The textured stitches help create a tailored fit, while classic stockinette lends drape and polished finish. Knitters will also learn how textured stitches affect gauge, how yarn choices influence the look of patterned stitches, shaping, and special cast-on and bind-off techniques.

The result is a wardrobe full of stylish and smart sweaters, tanks, tees, and accessories that you'll love to make and wear.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Connie Chang Chinchio's designs always stand out in any magazine. They are the designs that allow your eye and mind to take a bit of rest. They are usually swaths of stockinette punctuated by texture for visual interest and shaping. They are the sweaters that I think would look flattering on a variety of shapes and size and would be interesting to knit but not taxing. This is a whole book of that kind of knitting goodness. 11 of the 19 designs in this book are garments which is becoming a rarity in the latest accessory heavy knitting books. The styles are everyday wearable and subtly shaped for excellent fit. They are knit using mostly DK or light worsted yarns giving wonderful drape and a lightness and flow to the details and sweaters. Standouts for me are the Professoressa Cardigan, Anna Maria Cardigan and the Abero Cowl Jacket." - Knitty.com

"Popular knitwear designer Connie Chang Chinchio's careful attention to detail shines through in everything she creates, from her much-loved patterns featured in Interweave Knits and Knitscene magazines to the timeless fashions in her first book, Textured Stitches." - Crafters Choice Book Club

"Connie is of Interweave Knits and Knitscene fame, and her book will go down a storm with fans." - Knit Today

    Textured Stitches

    As a knitter of over 30 years, what a wonderful treat to find such a lovely book of patterns. I have many books in my knitting library, but this is the first and only one where I can say with confidence that given time, I would love to knit every single item in the book! All of them are just my style ethic... feminine, interesting without being overdone or ruined with a lot of unnecessary details, and all made with wonderful yarns that won't be difficult to find or outrageously expensive.
    I have bought patternsfor a coupleof Ms. Chinciao's cardigans online having always liked and admired her work, but this book of her patterns is just perfect!
