Grab your knitting needles and take a peek into the mind of one of the knitting world's most innovative designers with Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy. We've put together this newsletter so you have all the information about this exciting new publication.
You'll know Bristol's classic tailoring and innovative techniques from her patterns and Pom Pom Press is thrilled to bring you her first book. Originating from her workshop of the same name that she has been teaching and developing for four years, this exceeds the standard of the traditional pattern book.
Knitting Outside the Box is part creative exercises, part insight into the design process. Bristol guides the reader (and knitter) through the techniques she herself uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. For any knitter who has mused on the question ‘What if?’, Bristol encourages an experimental approach, with her generous spirit and enthusiasm imbued in every exercise and explanation.
Each stage of the book is complemented with a knitting pattern, which serves as an example of the methods explained in the book. Fifteen garments and accessories are paired with yarns by talented independent dyers like Spincycle Yarns, Madelinetosh, and The Uncommon Thread.
