Graphic Knits: 20 Designs in Bold, Beautiful Color by Alexis Winslow
Go bold with gorgeous, graphic color.
Graphic Knits is a collection of 20 patterns featuring modern colorwork inspired by geometric motifs. Fresh and bold, the projects are created by an up-and-coming design star for the Knitscene set.
Author Alexis Winslow makes use of color-knitting techniques such as stripes, Fair Isle, intarsia, and slipped stitches to create visually appealing garments.
Flattering silhouettes expertly integrate vibrant colorwork or graphic detail for maximum effect. These two elements-shape and pattern-engage in a playful and mutually flattering relationship across the 20 pieces. Many pieces have unexpected, modern details: an oversized, chunky cable scarf is given vivid personality through color blocking. A shapely sweater sports a pretty pattern around the collar-but instead of a traditional Scandinavian motif, bright polka dots create something fresh and new.
