Bringing knitting into home decor continues to trend up and nothing does this better than an afghan. Many afghans are reminiscent of the throws and blankets knit for babies two (or is it , now, three) generations ago. Most designs are ideal for new knitters although a few are up to challenging experienced knitters.

Cultural Knitting

Cultural knitting, the exploration of garments and knitting styles unique to a specific culture, has its latest expression here. This book was inspired while the author was a Mennonite missionary in the Andean region more than a decade ago.  Like others of this genre, there is a concentration on a specific knitting application  –  here, the traditional purses and bags of the Andes – typical of the culture and an exploration of the regional variations in that application. In addition to the patterns, a survey of the knitting lore and techniques unique to the Andean culture is given.

 Armenian Knitting; by Meg Swansen and Joyce Williams, published 2007 by Schoolhouse Press, ISBN: 978-0-942018-27-1, hardbound, $ 24. 95.

The inspiration for this book was the Elsa Schiaparelli exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the specific technique used to work Elsa's signature Bow-knot Sweater. Dubbed Armenian knitting, the authors presents several de signs on this technique which is related to intarsia but perhaps older than, the inspiration for but different from intarsia.

The sec-ond book by this German author explores the origins of the guernsey and jersey - named for Channel is-lands and in the British tradition, the forbears of the traditional fisherman working sweaters - distinguishable by the weight of yarn used, with ganseys knit of a worsted weight. Those who have Gladys Thompson's book will find this title expands her index of pattern stitches; knitters interested in the cultural origins of garment styles and pattern stitches will find this a useful read.

Affiliated with the Royal College of Art since 1989, and since 1992 senior tutor, the author collaborates with two of her art fashion and textiles students in creating an introduction to highland knitting techniques using garment styles to withstand the tests of time and trend. Written for Rowan's Scottish Tweed ( Rowan sponsors the College's annual Design Award given following a student competition for garments with a high-fashion twist ) the 18 pattern heavily represent Sarah's own work ( with one exception, the four exceptional designs all come from Sarah's pencil ). Among the best: the wrap cardigan and lace top - both very knittable and wonderfully wearable.

Knitting Circles Around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles by Antje Gillingham published 2007 by Martingale & Co., ISBN: 978-1-56477-729-3, softbound     $ 24. 95.

Dedicated sock knitters know the charm of knitting socks as a pair simultaneously. With this method, orphan socks not only don't happen but true reversibility can be achieved - useful for the occasional pattern where on-line reversibility is required. The German-born author, and yarn shop owner, includes many helpful diagrams and a particularly useful chart for knitting socks for just about any size. A good little book to complete any knitter's repertoire in sock knitting.

Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!

 In the first of a promised series of three volumes exploring varying methods for knitting socks - in the author's word, sockitecture - Cat is at it again: demonstrating the seemingly endless opportunities which the knitting of socks can present. The major innovation pre-sented here is various styles for handling the increases or decreases which normally form the heel gussets - transforming those necessary stitches into what the author describes as eight different sock architectures but which she admits are really what they are, just variations on a theme ( among the most creative: coriolos architecture which gathers the increases into a banded arch expansion which can spiral around the leg of the sock - especially conducive to knitting with handpainted yarns ). A very intriguing book ( if not over-worked with too much self-created gizmo and gadget nomenclature and typographical signals - meant to be helpful but somewhat distracting and bothersome).

The felting storm, which first washed the yarn market in 2000, continues to shower us with alluring ways to use this "first fabric". Here, felted handbags (after knitting them-oversized of course) is elevated to an art form. Written by a California yarn shop owner, and Finnish ex-partiate who learned to knit at an early age, this book presents tested designs for a variety of novelty purse styles-all to be knitted then felted.

The Author's second book promoting the interesting joys of moebius knitting has a number of sheer fun projects for a knitter to master the moebius technique-some for felting and some not. Mobeius knitting is a perspective derived from twisting circular knitting, possibly revealing never-before-seen things. Cat's designs for both a cat's bed and a jester's hat are laughable to look at and can be fun to use!

The poncho continues to captivate knitters, and here are 20 fun, fresh designs for captivatingly unusual poncho shapes to fit every season and any dressing style and all knitting skills. In addition to warmth, ponchos-including a hooded poncho-there are designs for accessory ponchos to be worn for flair and color. "Greta", using short rows, and "Carson" with a wide butterfly collar, are perhaps the most intriguing. Most of the capelets are, but, disappointingly, easily dismissed diminutive ponchos.

Two Bucks County Illustrators collaborate in what is very much a basic book for beginners where the focus hardly strays from the yumminess of the yarns. Superb for illustrating to non-knitters how novelty yarns knit. Written for new knitters desiring to learn the craft, the authors survey well today's novelty yarns; some techniques discussed have been cast-off by knitters years ago. If the boundaries of your knitting have been set at scarves, this little book will help you explore new knitting horizons using the novelty yarns you love!

The first book by a former editor of Vogue Knitting, and whose previous designs have been included in such best sellers as Scarfstyle and Vogue's On the Go Series, shows Teva's uncommon versatility with both edgy and exsquisite garments and accessories. Her corkscrew scarf is as enchanting ats the chain-linked scarf is an endearing way to consume tid-bits of mohair and her cowl scarf is eternally fresh. These designs envoke-and celebrate-both tension and comfort through the use of non-traditional approaches to traditional garments. Teva is a designer whose abilities will resonate for a number of years, if not decades, to come.

Lace

Arctic Lace: Knitting Projects and Stories Inspired by Alaska's Native Knitters, by Donna Druchunas published 2006 by Nomad Press, ISBN: 0-9668289-7-9 softbound at $ 26. 95.

Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!

 Celebrating Qiviut, spun of the down of the arctic musk ox ( see, Fibre Facts on page 3 for more information about Qiviut ), the author shares her journey in discovering this fibre and the Alaskan Oomimgmak ( Musk Ox ) Cooperative. The bulk of the boo is neither a true knitting book nor a comprehensive ( nor, a critical cultural sur- vey ) but rather a collection of seemingly unrelated reminiscences, the book suffers from the author’s grudging and lethargic style, which lacks personality and purpose and is overly reliant on doses of political correctness.  Wonderfully illustrating the Cooperative’s lace patterns but without documenting those patterns, the book admits does, but does not explore, that spinning and knitting qiviut were unknown to traditional Alaskans but does document the late 1960’s introduction of knitting to Alaskan native people years after the re-introduction of the musk ox. Perhaps the best part is the fully illustrated section about lace knitting and the author’s lace stitches; we were enchanted with the North Star motif.

The butterfly shape of Faroese shawls have a fit and fall ( drape ) appreciated by the wearer. Knitter’s who can’t quite get their fingers around lace weight yarns will appreciate the designs written for fingering, sports and DK weights. The chapter on scarf styles from The Seaman’s Church Institute ( you’ve got to wear one to feel the difference ) gives plenty of opportunities to practice grafting.

The editor's assembly of 20-plus garments, ranging in size and use from four-months to four years, for kids with ( or expected to have ) atti-TUDE. The designers' whimsy and creativity are both abundantly appar- ent - perhaps nowhere ore so than the Poet's Coat ( an Einstein adaptation ) or the Mobile Menagerie. Warning: except for the socks, this is not a book for dressing kids to a 'Junior League' look; most garments are designed for the Bohemian 'autre' a few do achieve the 'outre' look embraced by the editor. All are fun.

Directed to the new knitter, who both has accomplished all that scarf knitting and teach and is ready to move on in her knitting, the admittedly self-taught author uses knitting baby hats as the medium for a surprisingly comprehensive exploration of basic knitting techniques and forays into the creative construction and embellishment of the simple stockinette cap. The basics of stitch architecture are well explained and adequately illustrated. A good book for those who must learn on their own.

This former designer-in-chief for Rowan boosts the organic yarn movement with a couple of designs for mom, for both during and after pregnancy ( the nursing sweater moms is a must-have ).  The bulk of the patterns are for the babes through the toddler years and reflect basic shapes and styles but, unfortunately, without Louisa’s signature flair and panache. When you buy this book, buy it for the mom sweaters.

Knitters appear to never tire of Debbie Bliss’ designs  –  and for good reason: she shrinks traditionally adult styled garments for infants and children, then writes simple instructions to make the garments oversized and photographs the results worn by the cutest charmers being themselves.  With the closing of her London stores, Debbie has put to good use her slightly more abundant time to produce an abundance of fresh designs for infants through toddler and appropriately titled Special Knits.  Look for the kimono, kaftan and bolero –  they are truly special.

This first book by these Ontario sisters is in a vein with their pattern leaflets: knitting with minimal finishing – when you bind off, you can put on your garment. Here you find a set of patterns for knitting basic, wearable garments sized for ages 1 through 6 worked in the round: either bottom-up or top-down. Most designs are basic enough for new knitter moms although a few will expose sophisticated knitters to funky styles that the little ones desire to wear.

The yarn girls, known for using fabulous yarns and larger needles, have directed their signature style for quick knits, to a kid-sized scale. Here, the yarn girls present a complete knitted wardrobe for the younger set written to use yarns which are a joy to knit and kids will enjoy wearing. An ideal book for relatively new knitters: all designs involve minimalist shapes, basic stitches and simple finishing to focus on the fabulousness of the yarns. While more sophisticated and experienced knitters may want to pass over the yarn girls homegrown techniques, knitters of all skill levels will revel in the reception received with these garments.

 

Men's Patterns

Knitting For Him: 27 Classic Projects to Keep Him Warm, by Martin Storey and Wendy Baker, published 2007 by the Taunton Press, ISBN: 978-1-56158-992-0, softbound $ 24.95.

Rarely is there a title about knitting for men which merits the praise we have for this book. Martin Storey and Wendy Baker collaborate in presenting wearable designs for men which even the fussiest man will wear. Among the 27 designs are several stand-outs: Martin's collared Cable Jacket (with lapels), Ribbed Cardigan, Reverse Stripe Sweater, Cable V-Neck Sweater and Wendy's Shawl Collar Jacket. This book is directed to over-coming the frustration so many knitters experience when men show reluctance to wear hand- knitted garments. The designs have wearable masculine appeal, include elements which men look for in handknitted garments and show handknitting design at its apex. Many garments are interesting enough to knit again - for all the men in each knitter's life.

Screaming "I knit it my way", this sequel to The New York Times’ listed runaway best-seller from last year features the designs, techniques and tips from a hundred or so knitters across the country (and the world!) whose inspiration to take to the needle came from the author’s first book, or the groups founded in its wake. Funky designs for lots of accessory knitting: cat toys and dog sweaters, purses pulsing personality, hats (seemingly in the hundreds ), leg, wrist and hand warmers, plus a couple of ponchos with a sweater or two. The book abounds with lots of homegrown techniques of the craft, charts, diagrams and illustrations plus pictures of s’n b’ers across the country proving that knitting is hip, halcyon and happening – often publicly.

Long awaited, the newest book from the author of Domino Knitting is here is at last. Shadow knitting cleverly alternates rows of light and dark yarns in simple stitches to produce subtle, undulating patterns which appear (and disappear) from view. Authored by a Copenhagen native, who professionally designs for Scandinavian mills, clear, well-illustrated instructions to acquaint knitters with this artful technique which interacts with light, drape and movement are presented. Advanced knitters can explore new realms by incorporating variegated and hand-dyed yarns into their experiments while shadow knitting.
