Reseña del editor:

This book is for people who enjoy knitting and exploring the different patterns and textures that hand knitting can create, and who want to use these skills to produce beautiful pieces for their homes. Hand-crafted items always add an extra layer of personality and interest to a room, and a beautifully knitted and designed piece, whether it is a cover for an existing piece of furniture or a wonderful throw, is a covetable and unique accessory.
Ruth Cross draws on her experience of designing organic and freeform collections to guide you through the process of making and creating your own items. Taking an experimental approach, Ruth combines traditional stitches with new stitches she has devised herself. She creates desirable fabrics that can adorn many different items around the home, from easy chairs to footstools, a doorstop to a table runner, vase covers to wall hangings.
Throughout the book there are more than 20 complete patterns for you to create these beautiful projects. However, Ruth also encourages and gives advice on how to experiment for yourself to produce your own designs. Starting with the very basics – simple knitting and purling – and progressing to add further texture and embellishment she guides you through a range of different stitch patterns and techniques. As she goes through she shows how you can adapt these patterns to different sizes, scales and shapes so that they can be widely applied around the home to create competely personal pieces.

Biografía del autor:

RUTH CROSS started her hand knit company Ruth Cross in 2004, following her degree in Fashion Textiles Design with Business Studies at the University of Brighton. Initially designing collections of garments and accessories that sold internationally, the company started to win awards and get noticed by the press.
Soon Ruth Cross became involved in projects and collaborations with other leading companies and organisations including Woolmark, Harvey Nichols and Anthropologie, and an interiors collection shortly followed. Now established as the go-to people for innovative knitted design, the Ruth Cross remit has never been wider, but the goal has always remained the same – to develop knit as a fresh and exciting contemporary craft.
