Pick and Mix - Colourwork Designs with Endless Variations by Joanne Scrace
Pick and Mix: a collection of colourwork patterns to make your own.
Using this book, you can create your own completely unique designs by pairing your choice of sweater, cardigan or hat with your choice of four colourwork patterns and your choice of four main stitch patterns. They all work beautifully together without the need for any extra maths. The book also includes the maths and pattern writing assumptions so you can have a go at designing your own stitch patterns if you’d like to.
Each stitch pattern is written and charted, and lots of advice is included throughout the book to help you create the perfect item even if it is your first garment. Although the colourwork looks complicated, each pattern uses only one colour at a time (no stranding) and there are some tips on how to avoid getting into a tangle. There’s also the chance to make a patch pocket or a hat to get practice with the colourwork pattern before you dive in.
This book is aimed to be for everybody and every body. The patterns are suitable for age 2 upwards, are all unisex and offer inclusive sizing and fitting options. The patterns are written for DK yarn, a common weight of yarn that is widely available at all price points, so whether you live for indie hand dyed or want to pick up your yarn at the discount supermarket, this book will work well for you.
The print book is spiral bound to make keeping your place easier.
