Beloved knitwear designer Connie Chang Chinchio debuts a brand-new
collection of 20 knitwear designs showcasing texture.
Textured Stitches brings Connie's trademark combination of simple knitting
with lovely patterned stitches to 20 brand-new flattering, wearable projects. A
wide variety of knit garments are featured, including cardigans, gloves,
pullovers, jackets, hats, scarves, and more. The patterns are fun to knit,
mixing quick and easy stockinette stitch with more involved stitch patterns like
lattice, knitted pleats, cables, twisted stitches, and ribbing. The textured
stitches help create a tailored knitted fit, while classic stockinette lends
drape and polished finish. Knitters of all skill levels will love the must-have,
truly wearable appeal of these perfect-for-everyday garments.
You'll also learn how textured stitches affect gauge, how yarn choices
influence the look of patterned stitches, how to approach shaping, and how to
incorporate special cast-on and bind-off techniques. The result is a wardrobe
full of stylish and smart knitted sweaters, tanks, tees, and accessories that
you'll love to make and wear.
