Breathe new life into your colorwork knitting

Take your colorwork up a notch! 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.

Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Kjersten Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Kjersten: The inspiration for a project can sometimes come when you aren’t looking for it. An explosive flowerbed, a pile of children’s toys, or even as in this case, the singular hue on the walls of a dear friend’s music room.
       
Fleur de Zebra: A lot of opinions have been offered on the subject of why zebra are striped. Rather than venture my own guess, I will just celebrate their beauty. The graphic quality of black and white appeals to me as much as the zebra’s exotic cache. A shot of pink provide the surprise finishing touch.

Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Leafy Toque Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Leafy Toque: Sometimes as knitters, we get caught up in overcomplicating things. We want to challenge ourselves; we want to get just the right fit, to explore new silhouettes, to push the envelope of our own expectations. That can be a lot to expect from ourselves, and our creations. Often the simplest shapes turn out to be the most pleasing. This hat is a good balance between structure and decoration.
       
Counting Crows: I’ll admit it. I’m a wee bit superstitious. Any time I see crows, I run through the rhyme in my head to see what sort of omen their number might portend.  It’s not that I really believe they can predict the future, it’s more like buying lottery tickets or reading horoscopes, or any of the other little things we humans are still doing to explain or anticipate our fortunes.

Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Go for Baroque Spacer ? 10x10 pixels Go for Baroque: Some of the high points of the Baroque period include the invention of the pressure cooker, the popularity of the fork, and the fall from fashion of corsets (at least until the Victorians rediscovered them.) No wonder, then, that Peter Paul Rubens’s subjects were so voluptuous. Why not celebrate that spirit and take this pretty tote to market?
