Knitting with Rainbows by Carol Feller

Availability: In stock (2)

Carol Feller’s newest book, Knitting With Rainbows, looks at some of the different types of gradients available and provides suggestions for different stitch patterns, fabrics, and techniques that work well with each gradient type.

Knitters can practice their new skills on eleven fun, wearable patterns, and apply their new knowledge when matching gradient yarns with new patterns for future projects.  

From the Book:

Knitting with gradients is so much fun - I can never wait to see how the next colour will look knitted up!  And knitters now have so much choice, with the huge upsurge in the availability of gradient yarn skeins and mini-skein sets.  

Unfortunately, faced with a beautiful gradient skein pack, the yarn can sometimes look so perfect that it can be a little intimidating just to cast on.  How can you make sure you knit them in at pattern and style that will do the yarn justice?  Or, to put it another way, what is the best way to knit with a rainbow?  

In this book, knitters will learn about the different types of gradient yarns available: single skein, mini-skeins, dramatic colour jumps and subtle colour jumps.  Based on the yarn type, they can then use the techniques covered in the book to create the best match between yarn and pattern.  Knitters will learn different stitch patterns that create movement in the knitted fabric, such as bias knitting, modular knitting to join gradient colour blocks, and more.
