Freeform Knitting and Crochet by Jenny Dowde
Book DescriptionSince the main objective behind this book is to introduce readers to the wonderful world of "Taking Your Yarn For A Walk" through the mediums of colour, texture, freeform crochet and knitting, most of the projects are, by design, very straightforward with a very low degree of difficulty. For those who like a challenge, once the techniques are learned and understood, the concept of 'scrumbling' i.e. working in a freeform manner, is easy to adapt to larger projects and to the creation of wearable art. Thre are many interesting 'special' stitches that will help create wonderfully unique fabrics. Also learn how to make simple 'fragment' buttons and special closures for garments using polymer clay.
