Product description


Sept 08 I was very excited about the author's first book on this subject, 'Freeform Knitting and Crochet', but it didn't go quite as far as I had hoped it would. This new volume, however, is far closer to the book I had initially hoped for. There are expanded sections on design and colour theory, and more helpful motifs and versatile principles to adapt according to your own taste. There are still a few projects to follow if you like, but in my opinion, this title is a far more practical guide to freeform knitting and crochet than its predecessor. Together, it would be fair to say they make a winning team! Su Mwamba Waterstones Newsletter Nov 07 Freeform knitting and crochet is all about taking risks, working outside your comfort zone and trying new and unusual techniques, yarns, ideas to create something truly unique. Jenny Dowde is a strong advocate of this style, and warns that you will quickly become addicted! Her new book introduces the basics of design, from colour wheels to geometry, along with explaining many different freeform techniques. Also included are 25 inspiring projects including scarves, hats and jewellery which illustrate her ideas and encourage you to develop your own. This book is perfect for someone looking to take their first steps into design. Don't be hesitant - take your yarn in your hands and jump! Simply Knitting
