Go bold with gorgeous color blocking and graphic knitting projects.
Graphic Knits is a collection of 20 patterns featuring modern colorwork inspired by geometric motifs. Fresh and bold, the knitting projects are created by an up-and-coming design star.
Author Alexis Winslow makes use of color-knitting techniques such as stripes, Fair Isle, intarsia, and slipped stitches. With each knitting pattern, she demonstrates how to use these techniques to create visually appealing garments.
Flattering silhouettes expertly integrate vibrant colorwork or graphic detail for maximum effect. These two elements--shape and pattern--engage in a playful and mutually flattering relationship across each knitting pattern. Many of the 20 pieces have unexpected, modern details: an oversized, chunky cable scarf is given vivid personality through color blocking. A shapely sweater sports a pretty pattern around the collar--but instead of a traditional Scandinavian motif, bright polka dots create something fresh and new.
