Full Description

Each of the 20 projects in this book teaches you a new colour-knitting technique from working motifs in intarsia in a graphic Missoni-inspired throw to creating Fair Isle patterns through stranding and weaving in the two-colour snood scarf and, at the same time, consolidate and build upon those colour skills already learnt with the preceding projects. In addition, Erika dispenses her designer tips on putting different shades together, whether they are primary colours or neutral shades, monochrome schemes or punchy accent hues. She puts this basic knowledge into practical terms that every knitter will understand and relate to. Simple Colour Knitting contains an introductory chapter of basic techniques which is followed by a Pattern Library that provides a handy gallery of Erikas favourite colour effects and motifs. The core of the book is the 20 original designs, from cushions and throws to hats and scarves, that provide the perfect vehicles for practising your colourwork, whether that is random striping, tonal phasing, texture stitches or pictoral motifs.
