“Knitting Around the World” by Threads Magazine; 1993; softcover; 95 pages.
Here is another great book for the stranded knitting fanatic (like me). This book is a collection of articles from Threads magazine about colour knitting. There are lots of photos, instructions, a few patterns but mostly this book is just about technique. Last year I asked if anyone knew how to graft live stitches to bound-off stitches. No one did (including me) and I had to do my best. Now, I find a pictorial set of directions on how to do it – better late than never!
The chapters are:Aran Knitting, Shetland Lace, Exploring a Knitted Pattern, Colorful Traandsstickning, Fair Isle Knitting, Arglyes without Seams, Methods For Multicolored Knitting, Knit Paintings, Swedish Two-Strand Knitting, Unraveling the Myths of Shetland Lace, Socks – Socks – Socks, Catalan Knit Lace, Knitting in the North Atlantic, Make a Wooly Warm Coat, Designing a Wheel-Pattern Fair Isle Tammy, Knitting Traditions. There's lots of information packed inside this book!
I purchased my copy off ebay for under $30.00. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn more about colour knitting.
