This book is so cool I can hardly stand it. Anna Maltz has come up with a truly original way to think about knitting — a process combining marls (the result of holding two yarns together) with Fair Isle-style stranding (dropping one yarn strategically and carrying it briefly as a float), which she calls "marlisle." Her new book, Marlisle: A new direction in knitting, takes this idea and applies it in completely different ways to 11 patterns that are equal parts fun and wearable.
The patterns include the four pictured here — a groovy hat, the coolest yoke sweater I've ever seen, subtly patterned mittens and a chic fringed shawl — plus the deceptively simple sweater on the cover, graphically patterned fingerless mitts, a Missoni-esque cardigan, a bobbled hat, a strikingly patterned scarf and two quick cowls. Along with everything you need to know to knit in this clever manner.
I don't know when I've been this excited about a book of knitting patterns! AND it comes with a download code so you can get them digitally as well.
