This easy-to-download Folk Style eBook explores and celebrates the joys of living and knitting in an ever-shrinking world. Just like food, knitting inspiration has gone global; the idea of fusion has leapt confidently from the dinner plate to the knitting needles. Join talented top designers including Kristin Nicholas, Kate Gilbert, Annie Modesitt, Pam Allen, Leigh Radford, and more as they reinterpret ethnic and global influences into today's fresh styles.

Within the pages of Folk Style knitters will find items for women, children, babies, and the home. Patterns include a patchwork jacket, felted mukluks, a Slavic stovetop hat, a tribal baby carrier, Fair Isle socks, Nordic star pullover, shibori neck wrap, felted gauntlets, a Mexican floor pillow, Peruvian tunic, and much, much more. Filled with luscious lifestyle photos and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, Folk Style has everything the knitter needs to create amazing styles.

The most special feature of the Interweave's Style series is the Design Notebook section, and Folk Style will not disappoint. This chapter will share author Mags Kandis's distinct take on color, motif, detail, and style, all drawing reference from the contributed designs. Special focus will be placed upon simple how-to and will include Fair Isle and intarsia knitting, felting, duplicate stitch and embroidery, and various other embellishing techniques.Whether it be a simple one-colored, textured pair of mittens, or a multicolored tunic, the Folk Style eBook is wrapped up in fabulous ethnic influence.
