The Harmony Guide to Aran and Fair Isle KnittingUnknown - 2003
The Harmony Guides are a series of highly practical, illustrated guides to hand knitting and crochet, explaining basic techniques from start to finish. Richly textured Aran knits and colorful Fair Isle designs are two of the most popular traditional knitting styles. This comprehensive sourcebook provides knitters with both the inspiration and the know-how to create items to be worn and treasured for years. Featured are a wide range of Aran cables, bobbles, and twists, as well as Fair Isle patterns--nearly 400 stitches in all. Each stitch entry includes a color illustration of the finished stitch, a stitch chart, and step-by-step instructions that both experienced knitters and beginners can follow easily. Although these stitches can be combined in countless ways, the guide also includes patterns for timeless classics, including a his-or-her Aran pullover and Fair Isle gloves and beret.
