    [FLAP COPY]
    Knitting as a hobby has gone through countless phases of popularity since its invention thousands of years ago. Many of us no longer have a grandmother or an aunt to advise us on the best way to put techniques into practice. Most patterns on the market tell us how to knit a specific item but often have nothing to say about finishing techniques.

    As a knitter, you need assurance that you are working properly, and will finish up with a product that others will recognize as hand made and professionally finished--not merely ?home made.? How many times have you worked carefully on a knitted item only to be disappointed with the finished result once you have put its parts together?

    All Stitched Up aims to take the ?scare factor? away from your finishing techniques with step-by-step illustrations and photographs to help you to decide the best way to achieve professional finished results.

    The book begins with a simple refresher class on basic techniques. Chapters that follow cover elements of finishing, from the best stitches for sewing to embellishment, beading, and color work. Clear step-by-step illustrations and photos will guide you the entire way. Finally, you?ll find a chapter of projects designed to match all knitters? capabilities, from beginner to expert. Small swatch samples show how different techniques or colorways can change an item?s appearance. The objective of each project is to expand your creative horizon and give you the confidence you need to adapt existing patterns to suit your wishes and capabilities.

    Jane Crowfoot studied textile design at Winchester School of Art in the United Kingdom, where she specialized in knitting. After graduation, she worked as a freelance textile designer. She currently works for Rowan Yarns as a Design Consultant, offering hands-on advice to knitters through teaching and demonstrations. Her recent work includes designs that have been incorporated into books by the celebrated children?s wear designer Debbie Bliss, with whom she takes regular workshops for knitters of all capabilities.
