Design and Projects in Knitting and CrochetBook - 2006
This is not your grandmother's knitting and crochet! For those ready to break away from the pattern books and create wearable pieces of fiber art, freeform is an exciting discovery. It's a technique that abandons strict garment design and builds up simple shapes out of gorgeous textured yarns--with the knitter sometimes making it up as she goes along. Start with the step-by-step clinics on how to create fragments and motifs like chevrons, flowers, and spirals. Then take inspiration from the color photographs and combine luscious yarns in intricate patchworks. The result? Something amazingly unique. There's guidance on creating fabulously fashionable capes, stylish shoulder bags, intriguing scarves and hats, avant-garde jewelry, and even handy cell phone holders. Set your creativity free!
