The Knit Parade: 12 statement sweater patterns, 12 motifs to meddle with
This new book from the creative team behind wheres me jumper contains twelve original knitting patterns for motif jumpers.
Each jumper takes its inspiration from one of the author’s favourite songs. There is a different look to suit everyone, whatever your musical and fashion tastes.
But this is no ordinary knitting book. The emphasis here is on creativity and breaking the rules. Choose your own colours and your own yarn. Make a sweater that suits you. In Patterns to Play With, there are six graphic swatches that you can adapt to design your own unique pattern. Who says spots don’t go with stripes? Or that red and green should never be seen? Definitely not us.
Once you’ve chosen your pattern, it doesn’t have to end there. You can customize and embellish your sweater in any way you can think of. And if you don’t want to make a sweater – don’t! Learn how to transfer the motifs to something smaller, like a cushion, or a hot water bottle cover or a scarf or a skirt.
So get your knits out and stand out from the crowd!
