Couture Designs to Knit & CrochetBook - 2009
Award-winning knitwear designer Laura Zukaite has created a knockout collection of 26 stylish projects for the experienced knitter: chic, fashion-forward garments and accessories that showcase imaginative stitch patterns and luxurious yarns. Zukaite provides an unprecedented glimpse of her creative process, from initial inspiration and interpretation to technique development and the actual construction of the item, allowing readers to understand how her smart solutions enhance the design. She brings new dimension to the traditional stockinette stitch, adds lace inserts to a simple cable, and enhances smocking with new textures and color work based on African textiles. After knitters experience Laura's unique approach to design, they'll look at everything they create with fresh and insightful new eyes. PROJECTS INCLUDE: - Long Gloves - Shawl Sweater - Cowl Tank - Lacy Halter - Tonal Skirt - Gathered Cardigan - Beaded Clutch - Tube Scarf - Cashmere Muffler - Bobble Hat - Half Moon Stole - Fitted Blouse
