5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic resource - BUY IT!!!, 4 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Sally Melville Styles: A Unique and Elegant Approach to Your Yarn Collection (Hardcover)
I just received this book and I cannot say enough about it. It is wonderful. She discusses color, color wheels, color intensity, and how to choose colors that will work together well in a sweater. That discussion alone is worth the price of the book. She suggests tricks, including using a kind of kalidescope to see how colors will look with each other.
She also uses dyes on one sweater, and swatches patterned like the sweater (which she previously knit as UGLY and ill-colored as possible) to demonstrate how dyes will make the colors harmonious and beautiful. She uses a number or different dyes and they all produce beautiful results.
The sweaters are gorgeous! Some are garter stitch, some are slip stitch, and some are stitched after knitting, with patterns,like carpets or geometric patterns. The patterns are classic and timeless. I can't wait to knit these sweaters.
