The Shape of Knitting: A Master Class in Increases, Decreases, and Other Forms of Shaping
In The Shape of Knitting, innovative designer Lynne Barr gives readers a fascinating, in-depth master class on the techniques that can be used to shape flat and dimensional pieces of knitting―increases, decreases, short rows, dividing and combining stitches, and adding sections. She both reviews tried-and-true methods, explaining their pros and cons, and showcases many new ones that she has masterminded herself. To illustrate the best uses of these innovations, she includes 24 fashion-fresh, easy-to-wear projects, focusing mainly on accessories that can be finished quickly, such as scarves, cowls, shawls, hats, and mittens. Fun, cool photos of the finished designs combined with clear, close-up, step-by-step photos make this groundbreaking book both beautiful and hardworking.
