The Colourwash Fabrics
collection contains stitchpatterns which move beyond the use of dark/light
stitch arrangements and allow you to gradually change the colour of the
fabric using the stitchpatterns and achieve a colourwash effect.
This effect lends itself particularly to fabric which has been felted
after knitting, as this further blurs the colour changes and increases
the "wash" effect. For this reason I have included instructions
for knitting and felting your fabric, as well as instructions for a set
of projects such as the colourwash tote bag you can see on the front cover,
and a series of stunning felted cushions for contemporary interiors.
The stitchpatterns and projects in this collection are suitable for handknitters,
standard gauge 24st., 40 st. or electronic machines and for and chunky
(bulky) machines with 24 st. patterning facility
