Following in the footsteps of Wrap Style, Scarf Style, Lace Style, and Bag Style, Simple Style features appealing projects accompanied by beautiful, luscious lifestyle photographs, easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, thorough materials lists, and a Design Notebook that covers ways to maximize style while simplifying knitting and finishing techniques. Projects from 16 renowned knitwear designers-including Pam Allen, Veronik Avery, Mags Kandis, Deborah Newton, and Vicki Square-range from pullovers, cardigans, vests, skirts, wraps, and more, all using simple design sensibility for maximum impact.
By using just a few key simple techniques, knitters can create a visually interesting knitted project quickly and easily. From innovative edgings, a well-placed band of color or texture, an unexpected yarn, or creative construction that minimizes seams or maximizes personal fit, Simple Style is packed with clever design ideas. All a knitter needs is a basic understanding of knitting techniques.
