Splendid Apparel Book Excerpt:

The craft of knitting is devoted to making useful things, and the craft of embroidery is devoted to making useful things beautiful:Splendid Apparel brings these two crafts together. Anna Zilboorg begins with richly textured knit fabrics then adds embroidery for emphasis, color, detail, and sheen. The book includes a dozen example embroidery stitches and a library of more than 50 textured knit patterns, and the swatches— photographed both as they come off the knitting needles and after embroidery is added— clearly show the transformations and provide springboards for further experimentation. Stitch basics and step-by-step illustrations help a novice learn the simple motions, try variations, and add a contrasting color, while Anna's cogent comments identify where a knit stitch may require special attention and adjustments to make the embroidery steps easier. The 18 full patterns in this book are all basic shapes—a few with innovative, join-as-you-go construction.

Circular Knitting Handbook Book Excerpt:

A Step-By-Step Guide to Learn How to Knit Beautiful Pieces in the Round Can you knit flat? If so, then you can also knit in the round! There is no big mystery to it, and this book will teach you how to do it. Knitting in the round creates a seamless circular fabric and opens up a world of possibilities for crafts such as hats, sweaters, cowls, and socks. Knitting in the round, often known as circular knitting, produces a seamless tube such as in socks, sweaters, and hats. When you work in the round, you'd first cast on a number of stitches, then join the first and last cast-on stitches to continue knitting; the knitting spirally progresses in rounds (like the rows in flat knitting). Circular knitting has numerous benefits. The fabric's weight is uniformly distributed on the needles, reducing stress on the arms and wrists. Purling is not necessary in stockinette stitch, which is frequently seen as one of the huge benefits of circular knitting. The creation of garments like sweaters is also made easier because knitting in the round nearly completely removes the finishing processes of sewing the sweater together. Although double-pointed needles (DPNs) can be used to knit in the round, however, starting with a circular needle is advised because it is easier to use. You will also have to use a bunch of stitches when knitting in the round such that the stitches span the complete circumference of the circular needle. You will rapidly master knitting in the round with a circular needle if you practice consistently with it. There are various techniques, tips, tools, and troubleshooting tricks you must be familiar with, which are vital for your success in circular knitting, and that's what this book aims to help you achieve. Below are snippets of what you will learn; Tools and accessories of circular knitting plus pointers to make the right choice Important knitting terms and abbreviations Circular knitting tips and techniques such as knitting jogless stripes, knitting swatches, casting on in the round, joining stitches in the round, magic loop technique, increasing and decreasing, etc. Basic stitches in circular knitting such as knit stitch, purl stitch, stockinette stitch, garter stitch, etc. Troubleshooting common circular knitting problems 5 sample circular knitting projects to get you started in becoming a PRO And lots more!
