Textured Stitches brings Connie's trademark combination of simple knitting with lovely patterned stitches to 20 brand-new flattering, wearable projects. A wide variety of knit garments are featured, including cardigans, gloves, pullovers, jackets, hats, scarves, and more. The patterns are fun to knit, mixing quick and easy stockinette stitch with more involved stitch patterns like lattice, knitted pleats, cables, twisted stitches, and ribbing. The textured stitches help create a tailored knitted fit, while classic stockinette lends drape and polished finish. Knitters of all skill levels will love the must-have, truly wearable appeal of these perfect-for-everyday garments.
You'll also learn how textured stitches affect gauge, how yarn choices influence the look of patterned stitches, how to approach shaping, and how to incorporate special cast-on and bind-off techniques. The result is a wardrobe full of stylish and smart knitted sweaters, tanks, tees, and accessories that you'll love to make and wear. Add Textured Stitches to your knitting collection today!
