Silky Little Knits: Luxurious Designs and Accessories in Mohair-Silk Yarns Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mohair-silk mix yarns are very popular with knitters for their gossamer lightness and wonderful sheen. Kidsilk Haze and Aura are two of Rowans most popular yarns—silky, soft and luxurious. Knitters have been pleading for more designs to knit with, and now Alison Crowther-Smith has created a superb collection of more than 20 designs for shawls, scarves, shrugs and capes, mittens, gloves, socks, bags and hats, as well as cushions and a throw, using these yarns, occasionally with the addition of other classic wool and cotton yarns. Because knitters love to try out new ideas and new techniques, Alison has included lots of tips in this book to show exactly how to deal with any of the potentially challenging elements, from turning the heel on a sock to knitting on four needles, for those new to the skill. With some great lace projects, delicate little capes and shrugs, soft and feminine scarves and shawls, soft and cozy socks and gloves, and even cushions and home decorations, this book of irresistible knits is just what every knitter has been craving.

Synopsis:

With more than 20 unique projects, this collection of designs for knitting with mohair-silk yarn—a popular fiber known for its gossamer lightness and wonderful sheen—is the perfect gift for knitters craving new crafting ideas. A superb assortment of projects are featured, such as the gleam shawl, latticework scarf, stella shrug, starry beaded cape and corsage, colorwash mittens, frilled socks and bag, and ribbed hat, as well as designs for cushions and a throw, and a few projects that use classic wool and cotton yarns. For those new to the skill, a wide range of tips are shared, from how to turn the heel on a sock to knitting on four needles.
