Bias Blitz Knits is an ebook featuring 4 wrap patterns, each knit mostly in garter on the bias. The idea for the ebook began as I was designing “Swooper” the first scarf pattern in this collection. By the time I finished knitting the scarf, I knew there were more to come and Sailer, Ticker and Checker evolved. To give visual interest, I have added knit stitch variations like the elongated stitch in between garter bands which also help add length while keeping the width short and also shape the first 3 wraps. Checker is worked only in garter. None of the patterns use short rows or purling.
Counting Fingerless Mittens in 1, 2, 3, 4 Colors eBook is a wonderful way for knitters new to colorwork to practice their skills and work their way up to mittens made with four colors! Start out with one single color with the Smocked in One Color mittens, which allows the texture of the cables and smocking to really stand out. Next, incorporate a second color with the Meandering Mittens where two colors are used to create a winding pattern that shows off curved and linear motifs. In the Snakes and Ladders mittens, you will learn to work with three colors together, starting with individual ridges and curved embellishment for the cuffs which leads into working all three colors together for hands of the mitts. Finally, knitters will finish with the Cascading Kites wrist warmers where four colors are used together to create a unique motif that shifts colored stripes around the hand of the mitts. A whirlwind of texture and color, Counting Fingerless Mittens in 1, 2, 3, 4 Colors by Uma Padu is a must-have collection for adventurous knitters looking to explore unique uses of color.
As we see the inevitable, yet gentle change in weather we begin to understand that Nature offers a consistently evolving symphony of colors -- providing balance to the visual narrative of our lives, and always keeping things harmoniously exciting.
