Knitting is experiencing an enormous boom, as more and more people appreciate the opportunity it affords to create something truly special and individual. Many of these new knitters, however, have not learnt the skills from their mothers, like previous generations, and need help with their techniques. There can be no better guide than Debbie Bliss, highly successful knitwear designer and author of numerous bestselling books.
In Knitting Workbook Debbie provides a guide not only to basic techniques - casting on, key knitting stitches, sewing up garments successfully etc - but also pinpoints the key features of her successful designs and takes knitters through them step-by-step.
A basic guide to how to knit, accompanied by step-by-step illustrations and photographs, kicks off the book.
Debbie then concentrates on the techniques she feels are essential to creating successful knitwear, from using simple shapes to colour work such as fair isle and intarsia and adding finishing touches with embroidery and beading.
Colour illustrations are used to demonstrate each technique then a range of projects, featuring step-by-step photographs pinpointing key stages, allow the knitter to practise and perfect their skill.
As a guide to how to knit, and an insight into the secrets of this highly successful designer, this book will be invaluable.
