In the course of her career as an internationally recognized authority on knitting design and instruction, Alice Starmore has collected and created a remarkable compilation of charted designs for colour knitting.This treasury features a choice selection of her source material, arranged into four parts:
• Traditional patterns from Europe, Russia, and South America
• Adaptations from textiles and other art, including Japanese porcelain and Celtic metalwork
• Alice Starmore’s own geometric and nature-inspired originals
• Practical instructions that explain how to incorporate these motifs into unique designs
Suitable for beginning as well as advanced colour knitters, these charted designs can also be adapted to other crafts including weaving and embroidery. This expanded version explains how to incorporate colour into your work and features colour photographs of knitted swatches created expressly for this Dover edition.
