This timeless collection of knitwear designs from Danish designer Marianne Isager is a stitch technique guide and a gallery of design inspiration in one book. Classic Knits features 25 traditional, appealing projects worked in basic knit and purl stitch patterns, each with a distinctive design element typical of Marianne’s style, be it an interesting combination of yarns, a clever use of stitch pattern, or an unusual form of construction.
Choose the knitting technique you’d like to learn – entrelac, color stranding, double knitting, slip stitch, herringbone, and more – and apply them to your design by first practicing with a gauge swatch. When the swatch is knitted to the correct gauge and the same size as shown in the book, the garment will match the measurements listed in the pattern.
Many of the garments in this book are based on simple knit-purl pattern stitches. None require extensive knitting experience. You only need to know how to cast on, knit, and bind off to successfully complete any project in this book. All other information is provided in sidebars and the Glossary. Plus, if you have trouble with the finishing process, don’t worry, the garments have been designed to require as little finishing as possible. Several of the garments are worked from the top down, so it’s easy to add or remove rows to customize the lengths.
If you’re looking for innovative knitwear designs that include a variety of knitting techniques, Classic Knits will appeal to you!
