Textured Patterns for Machine Knitting

£19.99

Product description

Texture is of great importance when creating fabrics and it is possible to achieve exciting textured effects in machine knitting. This book contains information on planning and constructing garments, aims to inspire creative knitters and encourage them to explore the potential of their machines. Many different pattern stitches are given here - each of which has a punch card pattern - and there are ideas for decoration, using applied crochet, embroidery, pin tucks, fringes and loops. Since the author believes in the importance of colour, there is advice on choosing and combining shades, and on dyeing yarns using simple household equipment. When making their garments, knitters are encouraged to use basic shapes, and cut and sew techniques are recommended for certain areas. There is advice on knitting tension samples, altering wrong-sized garments and finishing off. Ideas are given for achieving new textures through the use of fancy or uneven yarns, and there is also a chapter on chunky knit machines. The book is aimed at the beginner and the experienced knitter. Aside from minor foxing to the top of the text block and a price-clipped dust cover, this book is in near-fine condition, clear text profusely illustrated with photographs of stitches and finished garments, also clear b/w diagrams.
