Surround yourself with beautiful knits in every room in your house! Patterns are styled and grouped by room to create a unified look for your Living Room, Porch, Master Bedroom, Guest Bedroom, Office, Kid's Bedroom, and Nursery. All pieces are knit with big needles and easy-to-learn stitch patterns, so you can be enjoying your knits in no time. Every room has at least one textured chunky blanket for comfort; other patterns include cushion covers, pillows, baskets and others, all in coordinating stitch/style and colors. The sumptuous knits are shown styled in a modern, neutral palette that works well in any decor, but if your style is more colorful, the patterns are classics that will work in any color scheme you choose.

Here’s a fresh take on the crafts of rugmaking and knitting—the very first book of its kind. These 21 stylish rug projects are so eye-catching that it’s hard to believe that even novice knitters can create them. But they can, thanks to a thorough section on knitting basics, sumptuously illustrated with more than 60 how-to photographs; advice on embellishments, including embroidery, fringes, and tassels; and instruction on finishing touches, such as weaving ends, sewing seams, blocking, backing, and lining. Put this knowledge to work on a multicolored Big Needle Garter Stitch Rug, Knit and Purl Oval Rug, Thunderbird Wall Tapestry, and others. Every rug is beautifully photographed in a home setting, and includes patterns and ideas for modifying the design. The author lives in Longmont, CO.

Knitting: colour, structure and design takes a fresh approach to knitting, examining not just the look of a knitted pattern, but how the knitted fabric can be altered with different stitches to change its stretch, drape and thickness. Once understood, the design and application potential of this textile technique is thrilling and endless. Written by a revered craftsman, this beautifully illustrated book encourages and inspires both experienced knitters and those new to the technique to have the confidence to experiment and develop their own designs. Topics covered: basic stitches, including many different ways of casting on and off, both decorative and functional; new approaches to construct fabric in any direction (not necessarily starting at the bottom and finishing at the top) in order to make any shape without sewn seams; an in-depth section on colour giving design ideas and techniques for knitting with colour; advice on dyeing your own yarns, including decorative effects such as dip-dyeing and tie-dyeing yarn; knitting patterns to suit a range of body shapes, with directions for personalizing these to your own requirements; an in-depth look at the technique of hand knitting, what effects can be created from different stitches and the way knitting is constructed by knitting in different directions. Aimed at those new to knitting, as well as advanced experimental knitters, it examines the technique from scratch as if it were a completely new technique to encourage deeper understanding. Beautifully illustrated with 247 stunning photographs and diagrams.
