A modern take on brioche stitch with gorgeous wearable garments and accessories that knitters will love. Knitters will create striking colorwork and beautiful brioche cable designs with Brioche Chic. Author Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark offers a solid introduction to brioche knitting and a collection of 22 garments and accessories for women and men, including hats, scarves, cowls, mittens, pullovers, vests, and cardigans. Striking brioche stitch designs that are not overwhelming or full of complicated techniques will reel in readers to this fun style of knitting. Starting with the basics, Brioche Chic offers mini collections of garments revolving around a specific set of techniques. Basic brioche knitting starts the first section, as Mercedes shows how the basic rib pattern can be adapted to simple motifs, lace, and various textures. Later, she offers more complex designs such as cables and various types of two-color brioche. Some of the featured garments are all-over brioche, while others integrate brioche with stockinette stitch for more streamlined, flattering designs.
Go bold with gorgeous color blocking and graphic knitting projects. Graphic Knits is a collection of 20 patterns featuring modern colorwork inspired by geometric motifs. Fresh and bold, the knitting projects are created by an up-and-coming design star. Author Alexis Winslow makes use of color-knitting techniques such as stripes, Fair Isle, intarsia, and slipped stitches. With each knitting pattern, she demonstrates how to use these techniques to create visually appealing garments. Flattering silhouettes expertly integrate vibrant colorwork or graphic detail for maximum effect. These two elements--shape and pattern--engage in a playful and mutually flattering relationship across each knitting pattern. Many of the 20 pieces have unexpected, modern details: an oversized, chunky cable scarf is given vivid personality through color blocking. A shapely sweater sports a pretty pattern around the collar--but instead of a traditional Scandinavian motif, bright polka dots create something fresh and new.
A Fresh Look at a Classic Technique Slip stitch is one of the simplest and most versatile knitting techniques, but it's often overlooked. The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is a modern and thorough take on this technique that delivers beautiful colorwork and gorgeous textures--with minimal effort. A complete overview covers all the basics of slip-stitch knitting, including stitch formation, reading charts, customizing stitch patterns, choosing yarns, designing with slip-stitch patterns, and more. Forty stitch patterns, many of which are reversible, stretch the boundaries of slip stitch, creating colorwork that is just as graphic as Fair Isle, but much simpler; woven-looking fabrics; and fabulous textures that are sometimes combined with lace and cables. Sixteen original projects for cardigans, pullovers, hats, bags, scarves, and more showcase the versatility of slip stitch by using it as an allover pattern or accent. Whether you're new to this exciting stitch or looking to go beyond the basics, The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is your essential guide.
A brand-new technique for creating completely reversible knitting. Readers will discover a new type of color knitting that produces a fully reversible fabric with mirrored or completely different sides. Worked by knitting two yarns at the same time, Twigg stitch allows the knitter to create two completely different fabrics. Not only can the knitter create simple reversible colorwork, but also different cable patterns or even lace that is a different color on each side. Unique and fascinating as the technique is, it's not difficult to master. Anyone with basic knitting skills can quickly learn. The reversible knitting of Twigg Stitch teaches the basics of casting on, handling yarns, increasing and decreasing, changing colors, and knitting in the round. Vicki also provides a stitch dictionary of basic to more complex color patterns, textured patterns, and cables. Ten patterns round out the book, from simple hats and mitts, demonstrating the stitch in its most basic form, to a shaped lace shawl.
