5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive colour knitting guide, 15 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting Techniques (Paperback)
This book is a great overview of colour knitting techniques, including the obligatory colour theory section at the beginning (it's well done, but colour theory is never that exciting). This book introduces colourwork techniques from basic stripes and varigated yarns through slip stitch patterns, intarsia, stranded work, twined knitting, shadow knitting and more. The chapter on finishing techniques is worth the price of the book however - techniques I've previously only seen on technical knitting blogs, explained and presented in an easy to follow manner.

This would be a great buy for an adventurous beginner, an intermediate knitter looking to add their own stamp to patterns, or an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or to brush up on techniques. The only possible downside is that the projects included call for yarn from a small US based supplier - though with the guidance on choosing yarns and colourways included in the book, finding suitable substitutions shouldn't be too much of a trial.
