Format: Hardcover
LUXE KNITS: COUTURE DESIGNS TO KNIT & CROCHET provides over twenty projects using traditional stitch patterns the author has reinterpreted in new ways. All garments include design drawings by the author, many have schematics, and all of them offer approaches knitters can use to build on their skills. From African textiles used to reinterpret the smocking stitch for a new texture and colors to a herringbone purse design, color photos of completed projects accompany clear directions. A 'must' for any knitter's collection, its designs are to be found nowhere else.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Marinapol on February 14, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book contains many unique designs. The photography is beautiful, although the book would have benefited from less artistic and more full-body images - some designs are shown only from the back with no front image available. For some patterns errata is already available on the designer's blog. The crochet patterns are few and less wearable than the knit designs. All my knitter-friends agree that there are many beautiful and wearable designs in this book, that make it worth buying. I have at least 10 in my queue!

Format: Hardcover
When you open this book, you enter a world of high fashion that Laura Zukaite created out of knitted garments. Beautiful yarns and elegant designs combined with gorgeous photography make you feel you are watching a Runway show. At the same time, Laura is showing the designing process that took place behind the scenes. The designs are very tempting and not very difficult to make. Very inspirational collection! Bravo!
