Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From the author of French Girl Knits (Interweave, 2009), French Girl Knits Accessories Kristeen Griffin-Grimes brings you essentially feminine accessories imbued with signature French-inspired aesthetics. Organized in vignettes that will take you from morning to night vis-à-vis knitted accessories, these appealing projects will make you envision your own daily life enhanced by wearing such lovely designs.

French Girl Knits Accessories includes 15 intermediate-level knitting projects that cover a full range of accessories for women. Designed with French savoir-faire, the projects include shrugs, hats, gloves and mittens, wraps and stoles, socks and slippers. Throughout this collection of small projects, youll find an emphasis on clean, modern lines and style, all with an underlying reference to vintage and romantic (but not fussy) fashion details and inspiration.

Techniques include seamless lace (sidebar on increasing in lace), adding embellishments such as buttons, ribbons (sidebar on sourcing vintage materials and tips for attaching to knitted projects), achieving perfect fit in hats, gloves, and socks (sidebars on using short-row shaping, toe-up and top-down constructions), origami-like construction ideas for pleating and folding, and fulling lace and knitted items.
