The Well-knit Home
[simple Techniques for Beautiful Results]Book - 2007
Accents make a room in the same way that accessories make an outfit--and these lovely knits can transform a home. Fashioned from such yarns as alpaca, cashmere, and the new microfibers, they look gorgeous and feel indulgently soft, too. There's something for everywhere in the house, from kitchen to nursery, bedroom to bath. An elegant, oversized throw not only dresses up a sofa or chair, but becomes a snuggly wrap on a cold winter's day; mock cables with eyelets give the piece an airy feeling without sacrificing warmth. A delightfully loopy pillow, with its lush deep pile, creates funky fun anywhere. Novices will especially appreciate the close-up photos and instructions for knitting bobbles and buttonholes, inserting zippers, and working with chenille.
