Stitches for Tailored Knits PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stitches for Tailored Knits free pdf Jean Frost's expertise with tailored knitting is showcased in this thorough compendium of fabric construction for couture jackets. The stitches are arranged into families that indicate the type of woven material they imitate--houndstooth, quilted stitch, herringbone, basket weave, twill, chevron, tweed, and fabric stitch. A full-size swatch worked in knitting worsted is accompanied by instructions in charts and words that introduce the multiple stitches. Stitch and row gauge as well as needle size for each swatch provides a useful starting point for knitters. Multiple variations of these stitches are displayed and knitters are instructed that adding additional colors, fibers, or yarn can dramatically transform the template. Using clearly illustrated techniques and explanations for how, when, and why to add edge stitches for perfect finishing, this is a fitting follow up to Jean Frost's previous jacket-specific crafting books.
