When worked harmoniously, colour can be used to engage a viewer, to evoke emotions and to communicate meaning and when selecting designs and palettes. This collection of patterns, designs and motifs will keep knitters constantly inspired. From simple stripes and polkadots to more complicated Fair Isle designs, Colourwork Stitches features a range of swatches for knitters of every skill level. Whether you want to create a men’s scarf in a slip-stitch tartan or a baby blanket in a chevron stripe, this volume is designed to revolutionise the way you think about the colourwork in your projects. All swatches are worked in updated yarns, beautifully photographed and accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. The Harmony Guides have been longstanding references for handcrafters for more than thirty years, with over half a million worldwide sales. All titles are fully revised and updated with eye-catching photography and innovative new stitches, but also never forgetting the heritage of the guides, these really will be the only reference titles on any knitter’s bookshelves. Other books in the series include: ‘Knit & Purl’, ‘Lace & Eyelets’, ‘Cables & Arans’, ‘Crochet Stitch Motifs’, ‘Basic Crochet Stitches’, ‘101 Stitches to Knit’, ‘101 Stitches to Crochet’, ‘Knit Edgings & Trims’ and ‘Crochet Edgings & Trims’.
