All the techniques you need plus 5 stunning knitted colourwork projects by Anna Dervout
Colourwork refers to a technique used to knit patterns in multiple colours; it requires the simultaneous use of different colours in the same row. An understanding of colourwork paves the way to integrating a vast range of knitting motifs: horizontal, vertical, geometric or stand-alone.
In Colourwork in the Round, discover different colourwork techniques using circular needles.
You’ll learn how to choose your yarns, manage tension, knit in the round, and integrate a seamless change of colour into your work.
Colourwork in the Round does the hard work of demystifying this traditional knitting technique through clear, illustrated step-by-step instructions that guide you through the learning process, and a detailed chapter on how to read a colourwork pattern chart.
Then, there's the chance to put your knowledge into practice to create five gorgeous garments, each suited to a different skill level: create a hat, a sweater or a cardigan and see all your hard work pay off!
Anna’s patterns are designed to be, above all, relaxing for the knitter; they are written in a clear manner, accessible to beginners, and are also size-inclusive: patterns cater for children from 3 months to 12 years, and women from UK sizes 8 to 22 (US 4 to 18; EU 36/40 to 40/54).
