Combine mosaic and lace in your knitting for easy colorwork with impeccable style The impact of two-color knitting made while knitting with only one color yarn per row--yes, please! Add in a dash of lace to keep the fabric flexible, and what you end up with are knockout colorful knits with beautiful and comfortable drape. Barbara Benson has been experimenting with the fusion of mosaic knitting and lace stitches over the past few years, and has created this breathtaking collection of 20 shawls, cowls, scarves, hats, and other accessories. To make the patterns accessible to any knitter, she has added a helpful instructional section that covers the basics of knitting slip stitches, how to read lace and mosaic charts, how to work mosaic in the round, and tips and tricks to help you avoid potential pitfalls. The book has projects for all level knitters. Start with a project in which the mosaic and lace are worked in different sections, such as a hat with alternating bands of mosaic and lace. Then progress to more complex patterns where the slip stitch and lace stitches are worked at the same time. Each stitch plays an important role--these patterns will keep the interest of even the most experienced knitter!

A Fresh Look at a Classic Technique Slip stitch is one of the simplest and most versatile knitting techniques, but it's often overlooked. The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is a modern and thorough take on this technique that delivers beautiful colorwork and gorgeous textures--with minimal effort. A complete overview covers all the basics of slip-stitch knitting, including stitch formation, reading charts, customizing stitch patterns, choosing yarns, designing with slip-stitch patterns, and more. Forty stitch patterns, many of which are reversible, stretch the boundaries of slip stitch, creating colorwork that is just as graphic as Fair Isle, but much simpler; woven-looking fabrics; and fabulous textures that are sometimes combined with lace and cables. Sixteen original projects for cardigans, pullovers, hats, bags, scarves, and more showcase the versatility of slip stitch by using it as an allover pattern or accent. Whether you're new to this exciting stitch or looking to go beyond the basics, The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is your essential guide.

Rustic, organic, urban, natural–a collection of unique knitted accessories. Enjoy a clean, sophisticated take on knitting with Rustic Modern Knits. Yumiko Alexander's collection of 23 knitted accessories takes its inspiration from the natural world. Her knitted headbands, shawls, wraps, mitts, hats, and more all reflect her interest in nature's beauty–verdant leaves, flowers, shells, waves, and colors inspired by sunsets and stone. Versatile knitting designs allow a shawl to become a scarf or a cape by making just a few slight adjustments. Stitch patterns and easy techniques have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the knitted fabric. Yumiko's knitting designs are fashion-forward but never trendy--they exist in a sphere all their own. Despite or perhaps because of their organic and rustic feel, they are very much at home in a cosmopolitan setting, and should appeal to knitters looking for beautiful and unique knitting projects to wear.
