Knitting is still one of the most popular needlecrafts and is a great way to make beautiful and original clothes and accessories. This book of specially commissioned designs for both fashion garments and home accessories has been created with the style-conscious in mind. Contemporary knits in beautiful yarns and subtle colors fill the pages of this inspirational book. Designs for a shawl, waistcoat, shrug, scarf and dress are just some of the very wearable pieces featured. Additionally, why not knit yourself a pretty blanket, a throw or a cushion cover for your home? All patterns have been thoroughly tested and give clear instructions with diagrams and charts where necessary. With a comprehensive introduction to the techniques of this beautiful craft, this book is your one-stop guide to knitting.
Val Pierce's passion for knitting began when her father taught her to knit at the age of five. Later in life she began home knitting for yarn manufacturers, and since then she has made a huge range of items, from evening dresses to teddy bears. She later began designing items of her own, and before long Val's designs were appearing regularly in national knitting and crochet magazines. She also teaches knitting, as well as a range of other needlecrafts, to both adults and children. Val lives and works in Shropshire. www.crossedneedles.co.uk
