Colour to Knit eBook

KNITSONIK & Friends: Colour to Knit is an inspiring creative adventure. There are four exciting stranded colourwork projects from four different designers for you to make, and each one comes with enabling resources designed to build your knowledge and experience of playing with colour in your knitting. This book foregrounds colouring-in as a useful and empowering tool for planning shading sequences for stranded colourwork design. 

Patricia’s Brightlingsea Scarf provides a framework for turning memories into a bold and striking palette, while Nolwenn’s Cheers! Mitts use colouring-in to explore the colour possibilities of the random variegated yarn that languishes in almost every knitter’s stash. Felix’s Flombre Accessory Set (cowl, hat and mittens) inspires new ways of devising and conceiving gradients, while Bev’s Japonica Wrap presents a massive knitterly canvas for joyous colour play. There is something here for everyone from the novice to the more experienced stranded colourwork designer and each project comes with printable colouring-in pages, essays and insights that give you different things to try out on the page and on your needles. The four projects are ordered by complexity. The eBook begins with the easiest and most accessible project and concludes with the most ambitious. As a collection, these projects take you through different creative approaches, building your skills and confidence as you go. Each design is accompanied by enabling worksheets and colouring-in pages for you to print and recolour as many times as you like.

The collection is brought together through sumptuous photography and bright and bold colours. Journey through these projects to discover a range of creative approaches and use all the tools within to enjoy making these projects - and making them your own.
