Knit One Below
One Stitch, Many Fabrics
Knit One Below by Elise Duvekot
Book DescriptionKnit One Below introduces a new and exciting way for knitters to combine colors, weights, fibers and types of yarn into wonderfully flexible fabrics. The technique alternates one simple action, knitting into the stitch one row below the stitch on the needle, with either the basic knit or purl stitch. When worked in alternate rows of two colors or two yarns, columns of color appear on one side of the fabric, and a mysterious integrated mix on the other. A strong group of projects for the entire family spotlights this technique. The shapes are simple, the finishing minimal, and the fabrics versatile. Although many are easy enough for new knitters, several projects go beyond the basic stitch, adding cables, felting for bags, working color in intarsia fashion, and swirling the columns into socks and hats. In addition to her clean, European sense of design, Elise brings solid knitting skills to find just the right way to seam a shoulder or add a closure. The innovative details hold the interest of even experienced knitters. Knit One Below is supported with knitting help at www.knittinguniverse.com
