Simple Color Knitting
Erika Knight's simple ethos and clean design sensibility continues to be popular amongst crafters of every level. Following the success of both Simple Knitting and Simple Crocheting, Knight shares her color expertise using the same workshop-based project format. As you work through the projects, you learn new techniques allowing you to build up an essential repertoire of color-knitting skills, like working motifs in intarsia or creating Fair Isle patterns. When completed, you will have a stunning collection of colorful projects including multicolor throws, colorblock cushions, Fair Isle mittens, and striped scarves and sweaters. You'll also learn the secrets to composing an enticing color palette, as Knight shares her knowledge of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors; tints, shades, contrasts, and tones in practical terms that anyone can understand. With inspiring photography by Yuki Sugiura that showcases each of the projects beautifully, and supported with clear colorwork charts and illustrations, Simple Color Knitting will take your knitting know-how to the next level.

The result? Sweaters we can knit with confidence, wear with pride, and love for many years to come.
