As a hand-knits designer, the great value of the book is the creative inspiration -- he has the math facts in here so that I can expand my design horizons. This is really a book for those who want to go beyond repeating a designer's idea ... and come up with their own. This hardcover volume, with it's 28 projects and detailed instructions and clear photographs and drawings is definitely worth the cover price!
So......I waited until Boxing Day and started the Centre Out Bear. So unusual to start a Softie from the centre of his right foot, but that is exactly how you start. Got a little confusing around the shoulders, but thank goodness for some very handy diagrams.
NEXT to the centre out SOCK......THE BEST AND MOST INTERESTING SOCK I HAVE EVER EVER KNIT. I hate shaping heels and picking up stitches. This pattern makes is so much easier. Also some very helpful diagrams to help you through the unusual construction.
I have my sights set on at least two, maybe three more projects within the next few weeks.
Congratulations on such a wonderful book. Anyone who said knitting was boring, well just get your hands on this book. The tutorials in the back of the book are very helpful. I am a great fan of Elizabeth Zimmerman, and this book just adds to the many and varied things you can create with yarn and a couple of sticks..!!!......Gee....my creative juices are flowing big time.
Patterns that I particularly love in this unusual collection are (1) the tall "conehead" hats that stand up by themselves (tight gauge and the method of increasing are the secret); (2) the one-piece, half-moon "flummox" mittens (start with a tube, convert it to an octagon, add some short rows, and use decreases to seam the whole thing up); (3) the heel-up socks (start at the center of the bottom of the heel of the foot, knit an octagon, and work parts of the octagon separately, until it's time for everything to "come together in an origami moment"); (4) the net-like over-the-knee "swoosh" socks (a tube is knit in stockinette, then every third stitch is dropped to form long ladders from hip to toe); and (5) the ripple baby blanket (knitted as an Archimedean spiral).
Yuhas' book also includes some less-adventurously-knit patterns for several pretty shawls (e.g., the Feather and Fan Shawl, the gossamer Isosceles Shawl), blankets (e.g., the Dahlia Blanket, the Star Play Mat), and sweaters (e.g., the Leaf-Yoke Sweater, the Hood-Down Hoodie). The amazing thing about Yuhas' patterns, is how good the directionally-knit garments look when they're worn by real people.Read more ›
