“Feeling playful? Kristin Nicholas sure is, and the proof is in the pudding. She fuses a vibrant palette with a dash of ethnic-design inspiration and more than a bit of merry embellishment – choose your garment and level of virtuosity.” Yarn Market News
“A Kristin Nicholas design is immediately recognizable – sweaters and accessories covered in bold, graphic patters that play with geometry, color, and texture all at once. In her new book, Kristin Knits, Kristin presents twenty-seven designs that leap off the pages in a tumult of color and line.”
-Interweave Knits, Holiday Gifts 2007
“Kristin…is in full bloom with her latest book, Kristin Knits, which explodes with her signature bold colorways. Kristin Nicholas is multifaceted, bright-hued, on the move, and simple in her complexity – a true kaleidoscope of talents.”

“For those of us who tramp about in our monastic black skirts and boots, Kristin Knits is a joyous wakeup call. Fearlessly juxtaposing oranges, magentas, and periwinkles with bright greens, hennas, and pinks in crisp combinations, this master strands and intarsias her way through the color wheel. Kevin Kennifick’s spectacular photos capture the energy of the outdoor scenes while still showing full stitch definition. Nicholas lovers and newbies alike will flock to this new installment (twenty-seven designs in all), in which even the humble pompom becomes an exciting adventure in color.”
- Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2008
From the Back Cover
Nicholas encourages every knitter to look all around—in a flower-filled park, at an art museum, in a child's picture book—for colors that please and inspire. Work those colors into your knitting with wide or narrow stripes, surprising bobbles and fingers, or basic embroidery stitches that lend playfulness to even the simplest patterns. Experiment with your wildest ideas. You can always unravel what doesn't work!
Play with your new color freedom with 27 Kristin Nicholas patterns. Make your knitting sing with the warm, vibrant colors for which Nicholas is famous, or take inspiration from her to find your own color language. Either way, the results will shine!
Top customer reviews
Kristin combine the colors from a scarf into a Navajo afghan that even a beginner can knit with ease. Her cozy socks and boot toppers projects, charts and designs are so easy to follow that you would just love to make as gifts.
Her ideas are interesting and colorful but the actual product ( in my opinion) is not really wearable.
It's a good intro to colorwork.
Fun patterns based on traditions but with a new twist.
