The Knitted Home: Creative and Contemporary Projects for Interiors Hardcover – March 21, 2013

Ruth Cross  (Author)

This book is for people who enjoy knitting and exploring the different patterns and textures that hand knitting can create, and who want to use these skills to produce beautiful pieces for their homes. Hand-crafted items always add an extra layer of personality and interest to a room, and a beautifully knitted and designed piece, whether it is a cover for an existing piece of furniture or a wonderful throw, is a covetable and unique accessory. Ruth Cross draws on her experience of designing organic and freeform collections to guide you through the process of making and creating your own items. Taking an experimental approach, Ruth combines traditional stitches with new stitches she has devised herself. She creates desirable fabrics that can adorn many different items around the home, from easy chairs to footstools, a doorstop to a table runner, vase covers to wall hangings. Throughout the book there are more than 20 complete patterns for you to create these beautiful projects. However, Ruth also encourages and gives advice on how to experiment for yourself to produce your own designs. Starting with the very basics – simple knitting and purling – and progressing to add further texture and embellishment she guides you through a range of different stitch patterns and techniques. As she goes through she shows how you can adapt these patterns to different sizes, scales and shapes so that they can be widely applied around the home to create competely personal pieces.
