You may be familiar with Bristol’s classic tailoring and innovative techniques from her patterns. This is her first book. Originating from her workshop of the same name that she has been teaching and developing for four years, this exceeds the standard of the traditional pattern book.
Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches Bristol uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by bringing all the methods together to help the reader evolve an idea into a finished pattern.
Knitting Outside the Box features 15 garment and accessory patterns using yarns from a variety of yarn producers
