Alterknits: Imaginative Projects and Cool Creativity Excercises (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


AlterKnits is a collection of nearly 30 projects, each one introducing an alternative way of thinking about the construction and application of knitting. For example, some projects call for unusual materials (such as bracelets and necklaces knitted with leather and silver). Some projects blend different craft techniques into the design or construction (such as a skull cap with a crocheted border). Some projects apply knitting in unexpected places (knitted lanterns and bulletin boards). Scattered throughout the book are AlterExercises, which are creativity exercises for readers to try on their own or with knitting friends, as well as inspirational quotes from such diverse sources as Albert Einstein, Martha Graham, and Benjamin Franklin. While the projects are all innovative, they are not difficult. The design of the book AlterKnits also supports the alternative, experimental theme. The book is constructed as a three-part case, consisting of paper over board for the front and back cover and a cloth spine. Attached to the inside front cover is a large pocket holding the AlterKnits workbook.
