Texture

One word has so much importance in the knitting world. Texture adds elegance, interest, and an irresistible spark to designs. We all love the smooth, soft feeling of yarn on its own, but sometimes you just have to mix things up, especially during these cold months when you want to add some drama to the standard sweater design. This book has patterns for clothing and accessories, through which knitters explore different stitches, a mixture of gauges, and various shaping techniques for that added intrigue of knitted texture.
