Well, as soon as I heard that Barbara Benson had had a book published, I just had to nab a few to offer here.
Many of you know Barbara as the amazing designer behind BitterBlue and EarthBound Misfit.
This book, Mosaic & Lace Knits, has 20 gorgeous designs. Here I quote:
Create all of the impact of two-color knitting while knitting with only one color of yarn per row? Yes, please! Add in a dash of lace to keep the fabric flexible and end up with
knockout colorful knits with beautiful and comfortable drape.
Barbara Benson has been developing the fusion of mosaic knitting and lace stitches over the past few years, and the result is this breathtaking collection of 20 shawls, cowls, scarves, hats, and other accessories. Start with a project where mosaic and lace are worked in different sections and then progress to more complex patterns where the slipped and lace stitches are combined.
Clear instructions walk you through the basics of mosaic theory, knitting slip stitches, and how to combine them with lace using Barbara’s original methods. Learn how to read mosaic and lace charts and discover valuable tips and tricks to avoid potential pitfalls.
You will love seeing the colorwork and lace patterns emerge with every stitch. These patterns will keep the interest of even the most experienced knitter!
I copied a few of the photos on this web page -- pretty awesome, no?
We have a limited quantity of these.
