Artful Color, Mindful Knits : The Definitive Guide to Working with Hand-dyed Yarn Paperback
Artisan hand dyers build patterning potential - a color repeat - into each skein of yarn.
When the repeat stacks as the yarn is worked into fabric, patterning happens.
But if that patterning is just an occasional accident, it is often not attractive.
Artful Color, Mindful Knits turns those accidents into consistent, repeatable, understandable results.
Stitch, gauge, color repeat, and stitch count work together to create this intentional patterning.
Laura Bryant shows how to find and maintain it in over 40 designs from simple scarves to more complex garments.
But, if you want the colors to blend, she gives stitch choices and strategies that overcome unwanted pooling or patterning.
