Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Modular knitting is the technique of creating small units, such as squares, triangles, or strips, and fashioning them into garments or other knitted objects by piecing them together or joining them as you knit. Horst Schulz first introduced knitters to modular knitting in Patchwork Knitting and New Patchwork Knitting: Fashion for Children, which are more inspirational idea books than pattern books. Now Luters, a well-known knitting seminar instructor and knitwear designer, puts her own twist on modular knitting with this book, which combines instruction with knitting patterns. While Schulz looks at modular knitting with the eye of an artist, Luters adds the organization of a teacher. She first discusses the process of creating with small units and then in successive chapters covers squares and rectangles, right triangles, equilateral and other triangles, mitered squares, strips, patchwork, and bias knitting. Highly recommended for large public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
