Description
Take your colorwork up a notch with this easy-to-download The New Stranded Colorwork eBook! Mary Scott Huff puts a new spin on classic colorwork techniques in The New Stranded Colorwork:Techniques & Patterns for Vibrant Knitwear.

Go beyond the traditional Nordic snowflakes and reindeer motifs with colorful, contemporary designs for sweaters, pullovers, and cardigans for men, women, and children.

Inside you'll learn:
  • Stranded colorwork methods and steeking how-to
  • Tips, tricks, and advice on all aspects of colorwork knitting
  • 17 vibrant designs for the adventurous knitter
  • How to create interesting closures and add unique finishing details
“This book is folk art, not masterwork, and it speaks of everyday things that have meaning to everyday people like you and me,” Mary says. “Don’t feel bound to any rule that doesn’t suit you or your knitting. Examine The New Stranded Colorwork and others for charts that are interchangeable or create your own using graph paper. Just count the number of stitches each repeat and work accordingly.”

Enjoy this project preview, accompanied by Mary’s thoughts and inspiration for each piece. Breathe new life into your colorwork knitting with The New Stranded Colorwork eBook!
