Colour is the most personal element a knitter brings to her work. Vibrant colours combined in exciting patterns can make a project sing; dull colours or jarring combinations can just as easily break the same project. Yet even experienced knitters often feel uncertain about stepping outside safe but predictable colour choices. Noted knitwear designer and colour connoisseur Kristin Nicholas encourages readers to conquer their colour inhibitions, learn a little basic colour theory, and create personally satisfying fibre palettes.. Any beautiful display can become the inspiration for an upcoming knitting project! The fresh collection of 25 designs for hats, mittens, scarves, socks, and sweaters that Kristin has created for "Kristin Knits" showcases her extraordinary feel for colour. Her distinctive palette, influenced by Indian and French provincial textiles, is recognizable in five exciting designs for each type of garment. Kristin's innovative stitch combinations are another hallmark of her fearless ways with knitted colour. She adds stripes and checks to rib stitches, bobbles and fringe to edgings, and even embellishes entire projects with a few basic embroidery stitches. Welcome to a Technicolor world of knitting!
