Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches Bristol uses as a designer, exploring and pushing the possibilities of knitting. The book includes 15 garment and accessory patterns, a comprehensive stitch dictionary, technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and inspiration to help the reader turn an idea into a finished pattern.
Each stage of the book is complemented by a knitting pattern, serving as an example of the methods explained in that section. Fifteen garments and accessories that carry Bristol’s signature, classic tailoring and innovative techniques are paired with yarns by talented independent dyers such as Spincycle Yarns, Madelinetosh, and The Uncommon Thread.
Hardcover // 200 pages // printed in the UK // includes Ravelry downloads
A blurb from Casey:Y'all! This is super exciting! Bristol is a dear, dear friend and a huge part of the awesomeness of the Maine fiberarts community. Please, if you can, support her and buy this book! It'll be good for your heart, brain, and hands! She's wicked smaht with a pair of knitting needles :)
