A Must-Have for all knitters!
Rating
Andrea combined her love for the outdoors and graphic design with her many years as a pattern designer to create fantastic modern stitches. She has taken knitting to a whole new level of modern! In the first 20 pages of her book, Andrea walks us through the basics of stranded colorwork such as how to choose yarn colors, read charts, work with floats, and how to make these amazing stitches while only knitting (no purling). Having all this information in the beginning of the book gives us the confidence we need to choose a stitch and begin working on our first swatch.

When we are ready for projects, Andrea includes a sample of them to train us on how to choose and use the best stitch for a particular garment or accessory, from all over designs to accent bands. Her stitches are versatile and on the cutting edge of fun!
