Drawing on what inspires her most, Bristol Ivy shares the possibilities that she finds inherent in knit fabric. Utilising exercises she uses in her life as a designer, Bristol encourages knitters to make their own rules and push their creativity by asking ‘What if?!’

Including 15 patterns for both accessories and garments, a comprehensive stitch dictionary, and in a beautiful hardback case, Knitting Outside the Box is essential reading for the adventurous knitter.

After the body and sleeves are separated, short rows are worked to lift the back yoke for ease of wearing. Waist shaping is worked on the body, and hem, cuffs, and neckband are all finished with tubular cast offs.
