Explore a new approach to knitting! Knitting Outside the
Swatch is an exploration of non-traditional construction
techniques for creating and joining flowers, motifs, and various
geometric shapes to create inventive and dimensional fabrics.
Kristin Omdahl presents a library of 40 original and innovative
stitch motifs and shows how joining one or more motifs can create
trims or whole fabrics. She demonstrates methods for center-out,
top-down, and side-to-side construction.
Enjoy 10 project patterns including shawls, cowls, scarves, and
sweaters. Kristin illustrates how to interchange various motifs in
these patterns and encourages you to incorporate motifs into other
designs. Learn how to integrate these motifs into the body of a
garment and how to decorate or embellish other knitwear by using
motifs as edgings, bands, cuffs, and more. Think outside the box
with this must-have knitting book!
