Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Haxell (Knit Edgings and Trims) explores in this handbook the use of color in knitting. After a clear overview of color theory (using stockinette swatches knit out of colorful yarn), the author describes a variety of methods that knitters can use to incorporate color into their projects. Some of these techniques, such as intarsia, mosaic knitting, and stranded colorwork, are obvious choices, while others, for example, bead knitting and surface embroidery, are more unusual. Though this title doesn’t include any projects for readers to try out, the examples and directions are clear and detailed. VERDICT Readers looking for projects may prefer books by Kristin Nicholas or Melissa Leapman, but this comprehensive reference is suitable for experienced knitters. An excellent purchase."— Library Journal
