Description

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.

Details
"Connie Chang Chinchio's designs always stand out in any magazine.  They are the designs that allow your eye and mind to take a bit of rest.  They are usually swaths of stockinette punctuated by texture for visual interest and shaping.  They are the sweaters that I think would look flattering on a variety of shapes and size and would be interesting to knit but not taxing.  This is a whole book of that kind of knitting goodness.  11 of the 19 designs in this book are garments which is becoming a rarity in the latest accessory heavy knitting books.  The styles are everyday wearable and subtly shaped for excellent fit.  They are knit using mostly DK or light worsted yarns giving wonderful drape and a lightness and flow to the details and sweaters.  Standouts for me are the Professoressa Cardigan, Anna Maria Cardigan and the Abero Cowl Jacket." - Knitty.com

Very pretty, classic sweater and accessories to knit. I love how she gives instructions on how to alter the look of some of the knits, like the Starflower hat.
