Build your colorwork skills with this fabulous book!
If you loved Michelle's first book Building Blocks, then you will love her sequel, Building in Color! This expertly designed series introduces the novice to essential colorwork knitting techniques one skill at a time, all while knitting a beautiful sampler blanket.
The book contains 10 different colorwork techniques that you knit separately, and seam together at the end to create a colorful blanket. Each new technique has both charted and written instructions and a special "Chart Sense" section to help the knitter gain confidence in her skills.
As an added bonus, all the techniques featured in this book are supported with free online video instruction available at www.KnitPurlHunter.com
To make the Building in Color blanket you will need 8 skeins of 3 different colors of HiKoo's Simplicity yarn (for a total of 24 skeins). It is recommended to use a dark, medium, and light color for the best effect. Simplicity yarn is buttery soft, machine washable, and available in a huge selection of vibrant colors ... perfect for colorwork! BONUS - the yarn is 20% OFF, any quantity!
You will also need an addi Turbo US 6 24" circular needle and an addi Turbo US 6 40" circular needle for the border, or other size needed to obtain a gauge of 22 stitches over 4".
