Shibori Knits - The Art Of Exquisite Felted Knits
Photographs: 70 photographs
Shibori Knits highlights the intersection between shibori andknitting, offering 20 patterns that utilise this transformativetechnique. Internationally acclaimed knitwear designer Gina Wildeguides knitters through three dynamic ways to add shibori toknitting. The first method uses physical resists (marbles or corks)that prevent specific areas of knitting from felting; where thereare no resists, the garment does felt, creating unique fabric withbobbles and dimensionality. Another method uses nonfelting fibresas resists - for instance, a silk yarn knit with a wool yarn - tocreate windowpane effects or even mimic woven strips of fabric whenfelted. The third method creates ruffles and spirals when thefibres are worked in more than one direction; when felted, the workwill shrink differently in the alternate directions. The texturescreated from each method offer a unique way to redefine felting andbring the beautiful and unexpected world of shibori to the knitter.Knitters of every skill can explore this exciting method ofcreating art out of knitting. With detailed information on fibresand their shibori potential, a primer on technical felting conceptsand a thorough resource guide, Shibori Knits shows knitters how tocreate colourful, sculptural and delicate projects, transformingknitting into something new.ISBN13: 9780307393548
