Willows and Patchwork Rose knitting designs


  This collection of stitchpatterns is suitable for hand knitters or stitchers. It is an eclectic selection of textile designs, ranging from a monochrome Japanese-style willow design, stylized florals, sophisticated checks and tweedy-looking designs, optical illusions and abstract designs echoing traditional tapestry and brocade. There are small designs suitable for children, as well as interesting abstracts with a masculine feel, and last but not least the beautiful rose design- a sohpisticated flower motif with an art deco feel.

The designs in the book are fairisle designs using only two colours in the row with colour changes all at the same side. Alongside the main design grids there is a set of smaller mirror image charts which you can follow on the purl rows if you prefer so that you are always reading from right to left in the same way you would knit from right to left. (If you are a left-handed knitter, of course you would follow the mirror image chart on the knit rows and the main chart on the purl rows)
