  • Art Deco Designs for machine knitters
    and afghans Florals and Fronds Needlework Knitters List About me Contact Art Deco stitchpattern designs for machine knitters There are 20 designs in this collection of Art Deco knitting designs some linear or angular some circular rounded or oval some designs incorporating a feeling of movement and energy others reflecting calm and order There are a number of border designs as well as the full complement of all over textile designs all suitable both for garments and furnishing fabrics Knitting The Art Deco designs in the book are suitable for both 24 and 40 stitch machines and electronics using the fairisle setting and are quick and easy to knit In addition many are very successful knitted as textured designs on the garter carriage As usual the all over designs feature short floats but with the borders I have allowed myself some leeway The odd area of long floats in these designs allows a bolder design or allows a design to taper off into a plain area of fabric so there is no perceptable join between the two areas and the finished knitting will appear as a single bordered fabric A preview of designs you will find in the Art Deco

    and afghans Florals and Fronds Needlework Knitters List About me Contact Colourwash Fabrics The Colourwash Fabrics collection contains stitchpatterns which move beyond the use of dark light stitch arrangements and allow you to gradually change the colour of the fabric using the stitchpatterns and achieve a colourwash effect This effect lends itself particularly to fabric which has been felted after knitting as this further blurs the colour changes and increases

  • Quirky and traditional contemporary Pattern machine knitting designs
    way threads of art deco and japanese style monotones I have again included some designs with rich colour combinations where some colour changing enhances the design but where the knitting remains relatively straightforward all changes at the same side of the knitting only two colours in a row etc At the same time there are designs which rely on the built in patterning not colour for the impact of the design so you can choose whether to go for something very quick or whether to set aside some quality time for your knitting Most of the designs in the book are suitable for both 24 and 40 stitch machines or have a separate version for each There are a couple of larger designs suitable for electronics as well The separate versions of the designs often produce a slightly different effect thus giving you the choice of two designs Many also produce attractive designs using the garter carriage Two big designs with small floats perfect for easy knitted throws refractions design No need to change colours to achieve this edgy design cobweb design Depending on the way you look at it the spider s web centre moves around from place to place Longest float 6 st A bold check for a traditional touch Choose bright mediterranean colours or traditional burgundies and greys Maximum float length 6 sts A quirky irregular design the circles are not round and the borders are not neat A good choice for modern minimalists Maximum float length 7 sts Like all the books Contemporary Pattern includes design notes like those you see here with colour and design ideas to try If you are a Designaknit user and just want the stitchpatterns opt for the DK disk Seastrands design mirror imaged The strands remind me of seaweed strands
