Synopses & Reviews
If you're confident with the needles, but still feel a little unsure about improvising with color, now you can learn to develop your personal fiber palette with Kristin Nicholas. She enthusiastically guides you through the process of harmonizing colors and textures to create knitted garments that are personal, contemporary, and stunningly beautiful.
Nicholas encourages every knitter to look all around—in a flower-filled park, at an art museum, in a child's picture book—for colors that please and inspire. Work those colors into your knitting with wide or narrow stripes, surprising bobbles and fingers, or basic embroidery stitches that lend playfulness to even the simplest patterns. Experiment with your wildest ideas. You can always unravel what doesn't work!
Play with your new color freedom with 27 Kristin Nicholas patterns. Make your knitting sing with the warm, vibrant colors for which Nicholas is famous, or take inspiration from her to find your own color language. Either way, the results will shine!
Noted knitwear designer and color connoisseur Nicholas encourages readers to conquer their color inhibitions, learn a little basic color theory, and create personally satisfying fiber palettes. The fresh collection of 25 designs showcases her extraordinary talent for color.
