1000 Great Knitting Motifs: Yarns And Patterns For Knitters

If you love stranded knitting and are looking for a book that will allow you to add your own color pattern to a knitted project, this is the book for you.  1000 Great Knitting Motifs by Luise Roberts*.  The book begins with a short but very useful introduction about placement and color that becomes even more evident later in this book. Knitting Motifs There are the traditional motifs, which are graphed so that the stitch and row repeats are very easy to grasp. The patterns begin with the simple and progress to the more complex. What is especially attractive and interesting is how she shows the same pattern with different color combinations that result in very unique looks. In some cases, she takes the same pattern and has it mirror imaged next to it or below using symmetry as a design element.   Incorporating   these kinds of designs into your projects can turn them into works of art even if it is used for just an edging or around a cuff.  She ends the book with some pictorial motifs. All together, this is a visually satisfying book which any creative knitter would find stimulating, useful and enjoyable. *Trafalgar Square Publishing - North Pomfret, Vermont 05053
