Overview

A collection of 100 knitting charts and patterns for designs based on decorative tiles.

Decorative tiles have long been a source of inspiration for designers and artists due to their often intricate patterns and colours. This collection of knitting patterns and charts includes 100 designs inspired by decorative ceramic tiles from around the world.

Choose from brightly coloured colourwork designs to simple textured motifs that evoke everything from Victorian floor tiles to the intricate and brightly coloured designs of ancient temples and palaces.

Using a variety of different colourwork knitting techniques such as stranded knitting, mosaic knitting, and intarsia, as well as textured and lace knitting techniques and special stitches, a number of talented knitting designers have developed their own interpretations for you to create with yarn.

All of the tiles are made using Metropolis, a 4 ply yarn by Scheepjes but you can supplement it with any 4ply yarn that meets the gauge (tension) recommendations. These knitted tile patterns are the perfect stash buster projects as they only use small amounts of yarn and they're a great way to try out different knitting techniques on a small scale.

The tiles are constructed using a number of different knitting techniques including working in rows, modular knitting and centre out knitting so there are lots of different methods to try. All the knitting stitches and techniques you will need to make the motifs are included in the techniques section along with helpful step-by-step artworks and instructions.

In addition to the motif patterns there are instructions for five knitting projects to show how specific tiles can be used to make blankets, pillow cases, a needlecase and a knitted bag. Or why not mix and match your favourite designs to create your own blankets or throws? This unique collection of 100 exciting designs will continue to inspire and delight knitters of all abilities.

Read an Excerpt

This collection of 100 beautiful knitted designs features patterns inspired by decorative ceramic tiles from around the world. You can use these designs to create your own projects, such as blankets or cushions – or try one of the five exciting projects, which show you other ways in which the tiles could be assembled. Let these inspire you to create your own projects and take the chance to try new techniques and experiment with different colour combinations.

Each tile has instructions to follow to complete the design. Many of the colourwork patterns are worked from a chart. Some of the texture and lace tiles also have a chart. You will need to read the instructions to understand when to work the chart or how many repeats to work.

All of the tiles and projects in this book have been designed with Scheepjes Metropolis yarn – a versatile fingering weight (4ply) yarn with a classic fibre blend of 75% extrafine Merino wool and 25% nylon. Metropolis has enough definition to handle cables and colourwork but also blocks beautifully in lace and textured projects. Named after worldwide cities, the yarn is available in 80 colours, making it the perfect choice for any of these tiles and projects you choose to knit.
