From the Inside Flap Putting Color To Work

Imagine a softly striped crib blanket knit in the comforting colors of baby's nursery. Or a sophisticated cashmere wrap featuring rich jewel tones that set off a favorite black dress. How about a comfy-cozy pair of socks, knit in school colors for your college-student daughter?

Margaret Radcliffe unravels the intricacies of combining two or more yarn colors, explaining all the techniques that transform simple knitted items into fabulous, colorful masterpieces. From the easy trick of working with multicolor yarn to the intricate details of stranding and intarsia, here are all the beautiful possibilities for playing with color in knitting. With Radcliffe's clear instructions as a reliable road map, every knitter will discover her inner color designer.

Throughout, knitters will find creative solutions for handling life's little stitching difficulties. Tight stitches, loose stitches, curled edges, messy ends, and twisted yarns --- Radcliffe helps knitters put them all in the past with practical tips and tricks that bring out the best in every project.

Every time two or more yarn colors are in play, knitters will turn to this easy-to-use reference for questions large and small.
