I'm pretty excited about the book I'm going to introduce to you. If you are a knitter, this is the book "just for you." When I was contacted to review Geometric Knitting Patterns by Tina Barrett, I thought it would be the perfect book for me. I'm in the process of creating more Christmas Stocking patterns so this review came at the perfect timing to my new project. I was super excited and anticipated the day the book arrived.
Those who admire the intricate look of knitted patterns in sweaters and accessories, but have been intimidated by the seemingly difficult technique, will find a wealth of information in Geometric Knitted Patterns. Inside, master knitter Tina Barrett shows readers how to hand knit geometric patterns in a wide range of styles, from minimalist to ornate, and from classic to contemporary. Her clear yet comprehensive instruction includes:
- Patterns for 750 different geometric patterns, including plaid, Greek key, and more
- 10 step-by-step projects suitable for knitters of all skill levels
- Instructions for a range of knitting techniques, including intarsia, Fair Isle, beading, and more
Each pattern is individually charted on knitter’s graph paper—so the finished shape is accurately shown—and selected patterns are illustrated with a knitted swatch. Approximately 1000 color photos, illustrations, and diagrams throughout provide inspiration and instruction.
