Author: Erika Knight
Join fiber artist Erika Knight as she takes you on a personal journey through the landscape of knitted fabrics and examines the urban and natural landscapes that have inspired her designs throughout her career--through the city, country, and coast. Knitting designs can often feel frumpy and out of touch but the patterns of Texture will be an inspirational breath of fresh air for beginner and experienced knitters alike.
First you will learn about the basics of creating knitted garments from choosing the right yarn to properly blocking and finishing your garment. Next, learn how to turn a graphic rib, an intricate lace stitch, and a traveling cable into a covetable collection of sweaters, gloves, vests, and scarves. With simple and stylish shapes, Erika dispenses her designer tips for creating a series of modern yet timeless garments. Including inspiring photography that showcases the beautiful designs, this book is the ultimate source for knitted texture and belongs on every knitter's bookshelf.
