The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques

Imagine a cozy crib blanket knit in the colors of baby's nursery. Or an elegant cashmere wrap in rich jewel tones that set off a favorite black dress. How about a comfy pair of socks knit in school colors for your college-student daughter? Margaret Radcliffe unravels the intricacies of combining two or more yarn colors, clearly explaining the techniques that transform simple knitted items into fabulous masterpieces. With Radcliffe’s clear instructions as a reliable road map, every knitter will discover her inner color designer. There are complete chapters on stripes, stitch effects, knitting with multicolor yarns, stranded knitting, and intarsia, covering both the theory and the how-to behind each method. Additional chapters offer advice on modifying existing one-color patterns and designing new patterns that use two or more colors in a rainbow of designs.

“Embrace color! This book will have you drooling in anticipation of getting out your needles and trying something new with color. Here is something for everyone: Loads of different approaches to using vibrant yarns, texture, and stitches with a solid underpinning of excellent knitting techniques and advice.”
— Lucy Neatby, creator of the Learn with Lucy knitting DVD series and author of
