  • Shading designs for machine knitting
    Collection Nomad Collection Optical Illusions Patchworks 24 Tartans and Checks Tones and Shades Trellis Collection Special Effects Hand Knitting Knitting swatchboards Knitting for men Throws and afghans Florals and Fronds Needlework Knitters List About me Contact Tones and Shades Designs with short floats and no colour changes making use of toning and shading techniques to create designs using shades of grey and intermediate colours purely by the imaginative arrangement of dark and light stitches 24st and 40 st versions of all the designs For knitters with more enthusiasm than time I know this collection of stitchpatterns will appeal By arranging different coloured stitches in certain ways gradually changing fabrics can be achieved This is an ideal technique for a knitter because a really unusual garment can be created made unique by this amazingly quick and easy colourmerge technique Because the fabric is treated more like a canvas than a collection of individual stitches some designs can appear to travel across the 24st or 40st limit giving the appearance of a design which can only be knitted on an electronic machine but achieved on a punchcard machine Not only that but while the designs may look very big I have kept

  • Colourwash Fabrics hand knitting designs
    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 the wash effect For this reason I have included instructions

  • Contemporary Pattern hand knitting designs
    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 patterning not colour for the impact of the design so you can choose whether to go for something simpler

  • Ikat look hand knitting designs
    because of the imperceptible merging of different layers of pattern Ikat fabrics are woven designs which have a distinctive appearance due to the fuzziness of the outlines on the shapes and because they sometimes seem to incorporate a shadow of another design just below the surface This style of weaving is one where either the warp or the weft or both undergo a custom tie dye style process so that there is an underlying design on the threads of the fabric before weaving begins The loom is threaded up then dye resistant markers are arranged in a pattern then the threads removed dyed and replaced in the same arrangement so that there is a tie dyed pattern over the threads before weaving Not a process for the time challenged A double ikat is when both the warp and the weft are tie dyed before weaving About this collection of knitted Ikat fabrics Obviously since ikat is a weaving technique a knitted fabric cannot be an ikat fabric but it can echo the distinctive appearance for which Ikats are known Unlike some design traditions which can be difficult to translate into knitted form the distinctive ikat appearance fits comfortably with the horizontal lines which are naturally produced in knitted fabrics I have had fun with these designs and included many with a horizontal pattern some where the patterning is vertical and a few with diagonal patterning The horizontal designs can be infinitely varied by imaginative use of colour and in the design notes for the stitchpatterns I have included ideas for colour alongside the designs There are 21 basic designs in the Ikat collection with additonal variations and alternative colourways Each design comes with its own chart showing the different colourways if applicable and hints and tips for knitting and experimenting

  • Optical Illusions hand knitting designs
    me Contact Optical Illusions The designs in this collection share the common feature that they are not what they appear The designs follow in the footsteps of the Japanese optical tradition as well as American patchwork designs which delight in forming squares which when pieced together illuminate circular or other shapes or objects Many designs in the Optical Illusions collection incorporate multiple layers of patterning so that the design changes depending on the way you look at it Different shapes come to the fore at different times and sometimes all are perceived at once so that you might be seeing a series of circles yet a series of squares or triangles at the same time Alternatively you might see a series of blocks stacked up at first glance but a series of flowers when you look again Knitting The designs in the book are fairisle designs using only two colours in the row with colour changes all at the same side Alongside the main design grids there is a set of smaller mirror image charts which you can follow on the purl rows if you prefer so that you are always reading from right to left in the same way
