Book Description

Do you already knit but have never dared try colourwork (jacquard)?

There's no need to be intimidated any more! With the help of author Anna Dervout, you'll soon have colourwork spilling off your needles with ease, as you create delicate, modern patterns for women and children alike to wear.

Colourwork refers to a technique used to knit patterns in multiple colours; it requires the simultaneous use of several different colours in the same row. Colourwork is used for sweaters, hats, scarves and mittens, but also a wide range of accessories (cushions, Christmas stockings or coasters). An understanding of colourwork paves the way to integrating a vast range of knitting motifs: horizontal, vertical, geometric or stand-alone.

In Colourwork in the Round, you’ll discover different colourwork techniques using circular needles, which are becoming increasingly popular among knitting enthusiasts. You’ll learn how to choose your yarns, manage tension, knit in the round, and integrate a seamless change of colour into your work. Colourwork in the Round does the hard work of demystifying this traditional knitting technique so that it no longer holds any secrets.

Illustrated step-by-step instructions guide you through the learning process; at the end of the book there's the chance to put your knowledge into practice to create five superb patterns, each suited to a different skill level: create a hat, a sweater or a cardigan and see all your hard work pay off!

Anna’s patterns are designed to be, above all, relaxing for the knitter; they are written in a clear manner, accessible to beginners, and are also size inclusive.

Colourwork in the Round is a complete guide to learning this technique and making your first garments.
