Contemporary Irish Knitting free pdf Knitters are looking for innovative patterns, and for opportunities to enhance their skills and broaden their range of knitterly knowledge. "Contemporary Irish Knits" was created with these desires in mind. An informative yet fun read, "Contemporary Irish Knits" features beautiful photography, an elegant design and 20 enjoyable-to-knit one-of-a-kind patterns. Blending the best of the old and the new, "Contemporary Irish Knits" features designs using traditional stitch and cable patterns - with which the knitting community has long been fascinated - implemented in new ways to create the more fitted and flattering shapes that modern day knitters prefer. Between the covers readers will find: a wide range of designs, including women's, children's, and men's wardrobe pieces as well as accessories like bags, blankets, and shawls- innovative construction methods, to enhance the knitting experience and to make for a more intuitively put together knitted item- on-location photography in Ireland, combining simple and natural styling with rural and rugged landscapes to capture the feeling of the native mills and provide a wild and mysterious background for the modeled garments- and, profiles of Irish mills and hand dyers, reviews of Irish yarns and information on sourcing Irish textiles. "Contemporary Irish Knits" is a pattern book that knitters old and young will want to knit from, a showcase for the remaining Irish yarn mills and emerging generation of hand dyers, and a celebration of the Irish countryside and Ireland's living knitting tradition.
