Each of the 20 projects in this book teaches you a new color-knitting technique - from working motifs in intarsia in a graphic Missoni inspired throw to creating Fair Isle patterns through stranding and weaving in the two-color snood scarf. At the same time you will consolidate and build upon those color skills already learned with the preceding projects. In addition, Erika dispenses her designer tips on putting different shades together, whether they are primary colors or neutral shades, monochrome schemes or punchy accent hues. She puts this basic knowledge into practical terms that every knitter will understand and relate to. Simple color knitting contains an introductory chapter of basic techniques which is followed by the core of the book: 20 original designs, from cushions and throws to hats and scarves. Each project provides the perfect vehicles for practicing your colorwork, whether that is random striping, tonal phasing, texture stitches or pictorial motifs.

This instructional book combines colour theory with knitting techniques in a simple and engaging manner. There are 20 modern and fun patterns that focus on colour techniques - there isn't any lace or cables in this book. A great tool for getting started with colour-work knitting.
