Full Description

Explore the world of chunky knits with these fabulous, contemporary designs from knitting expert Melanie Porter. Melanie Porter has long used giant needles for her knitting creations, and here she shares 35 stylish designs with you. There are lots of projects to knit using needles from sizes 10mm to 25mm, as well as some that use extra large needles (35mm), and the great thing about using big needles is that you can work up items quickly to great effect. Divided into three chapters - Chunky Textures, Summer Knits and Mega Knits - and using a variety of beautiful chunky yarns, there's a whole host of inspiration here for any knitter. Hats, scarves and other winter items are all featured in different stitches and yarns, but there are lightweight knits too, including a tunic dress, shrug cardigan and cowl. Go from small-scale ideas - a necklace, headband, coin purse and bangles - to supersize projects, such as the oversized shawl, throw, body warmer and pouffe. There's a comprehensive techniques section, too, which covers the basics for beginners and acts as a reference guide for experienced knitters. Contents: 1 X 128 Page Paperback Author: Melanie Porter Author Bio - Melanie Porter is a graduate of Central Saint Martin's College in London. She spent 10 years working as a knitwear designer for a number of international fashion brands before turning her expertise to furniture in 2008. She creates one-off contemporary designs from antiques sourced at auctions and markets - each project is painstakingly stripped back to the frame, before being restored and/or reupholstered using traditional techniques, and then covered with a series of hand-knitted panels. Melanie's ability to create exquisite, textured fabrics which are individually knitted and felted for every project has drawn attention from clients and press all over the world. Her work is now sold at prestigious department store Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and lifestyle boutique Wolf & Badger in London. She is the author of Hand-Knit Your Home, also published by CICO Books.
