Colourwash Fabrics

Colourwash felt designs for knitting


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 standard gauge 24st., 40 st. or electronic machines and for handknitters and chunky (bulky) machines with 24 st. patterning facility
