Color Knitting with Confidence: Unlock the Secrets of Fair Isle, Intarsia, and More with 30 Vibrant Colorwork Techniques
If you are a knitter or want to become a knitter, it can be daunting to see the wide variety of patterns some experienced knitters create with different stitches and an array of colors. Nguyen Le has created a how-to book that will be loved by knitters of all levels who want to add pizzazz to their hand-knit projects. She opens with a spread on the tools and equipment needed, with photos of each and an explanation of how they will be used. This is followed by an explanation of the types of yarn needed for colorwork, how to read the charts, and knitting abbreviations, as well as UK to US terms. Eight pages of incredibly well-illustrated and explained basics of knitting might well allow a rank beginner to make good use of this wonderful book. A short section on colors – combinations, temperatures, values, saturation – will help knitters make good color decisions. The more than thirty projects in the book give every bit of information needed for success – materials, needles and notions, pattern notes, instructions, tips and charts, and sizing information. Color photos of projects, including close-ups to show details, are both beautiful and instructive. This will become a classic.
