  1. Making Marls

    Making Marls

    Cecelia Campochiaro
    $65.00

    Making Marls is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multistrand handknitting and the creation of marled fabrics. The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and colored fabrics. As with her first book, Sequence Knitting, author Cecelia Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries. In Making Marls, the word “sequence” is used to describe the order of marl stripes, rather than the stitch sequences in Sequence Knitting. There are common-strand sequences, bridging sequences, sequences from gradient sets, complex sequences, and even improvisational sequences. The book can be approached on three levels: • A reference book about multistrand handknitting • A pattern book with over thirty “recipes” • A source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colors Regardless of whether one is new to knitting or a seasoned expert, this book will delight and inspire. Published in 2020.

    One of Elizabeth Zimmermann's dreams was to publish a book of her Garter stitch designs, and what a book it is! As we looked through Elizabeth's Garter stitch designs in preparing the book, we found a wealth of material, much of it little known or unpublished. Further, we were intrigued and excited by the unique construction of these new designs (from the mind that created the classic Baby Surprise Jacket). You will find sweaters, coats, jackets, and vests for adults and kids; multiple baby garments; plus a wonderful array of small projects including sideways gloves and socks, several brimmed hats, an ingenious pattern for knitted clogs and more.
