Sometimes as knitters, we get stuck in a creativity box. We get comfortable with what we know best and forget to explore new yarn combinations, different gauges and different colours. Strand is all about breaking out of that precious box and experimenting with something new.
This book contains nine knitting patterns ranging from an I’ve-never-knit-before headband to a how-do-I-knit-up-this-enormous-stash blanket. Each pattern focuses on using multiple strands of yarn to create unique fabrics, but will ultimately teach you how you can customize and create your very own projects again and again. Whether you’re a beginner looking to grow your skills or a seasoned knitter in search of inspiration, Strand is a book for all levels.
As well as the nine patterns included, this book also has a comprehensive guide to knitting. Here you’ll find a glossary of techniques for knitting, combining different yarn weights, gauge, and finishing. We’ve also put together some of our favourite tips and tricks on how to get artistic and playful with your yarn. These patterns may be simple, but they will teach you that anything is possible with a few strands held together.
