Knitters Yarn Palette by Claire Montgomerie

A visual celebration and source of inspiration for knitters eager to experiment with the newest colors and textures

Today's diverse knitters-some 50 million strong in North America-crave skeins of variety for stylish fashion pieces. Written by a rising young knitwear designer, Knitter's Yarn Palette spotlights exciting possibilities-from fun eyelash yarns to sumptuous angora-and showcases more than 200 full-color photos of yarns in every color, texture, and fiber imaginable. Sample swatches clearly show the results that can be achieved.

This unique book explains everything there is to know about weight, gauge, texture, and the suitability of mixing yarns using a wide range of 30 projects that revolve around 10 themes including:

• Seashores-delicate shades of sky and sandfistring, cotton, and linen yarns? ripple-effect techniques

• Lazy Meadow-grassy green, poppy red, buttercup yellow-soft, silky, velvety yarns-ruffling and layering techniques

• Tribal Adventure-earth tones-linen, wools, and felted yarns-felting techniques

Knitters of all levels will gain confidence to experiment and select alternatives to the yarns specified in patterns. Experienced knitters will gain the inspiration to create their own unique designs from the stunning themes.
