Knitprovisation by Cilla Ramnek
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Swedes have a penchant for making great meatballs and creating modern plywood furnishings at afforable prices, but who knew they could craft as well? Knitprovisation throws conventional techniques out the window and explores a new approach to creating garments and accessories. the book is packed with 70 simple projects that can be made without patterns and encourages crafters to recycle and repurpose using what you already have to create something entirely new and fabulous. Designs range from a backless top and woven skirt with crocheted ruffle edging to a child's jacket and an apron skirt with crocheted borders. Discover how to create a pot-holder embellished skirt or an apron dress by joining two simple items together. Learn how to employ yarn, paper and plastic into a variety of bags. Needless to say, you'll never be short of ideas and designs to make. A basic knowledge of knit and purl required, any beginner knitter can create any of these innovative projects. Moreover, opposed to standard knitting instructions, the patterns are described in a conversational tone to make the process unintimidating and easy to follow.
