For designer Margret Willson, textured knitting is a scenic byway through hills and valleys, among shapes and shadows, across smooth fields dotted with giddy little bumps. It's that step beyond the "blank page" of the Stockinette stitch! Perfect for beginning knitters who are ready for a challenge or accomplished knitters seeking a fascinating interlude, textured knitting uses only the knit and purl stitches combined in unique ways with fabulous results. Margret escorts knitters on the journey of textured knitting with 72 stitch patterns, a sampler section featuring simple afghan, scarf, dishcloth, and pillow projects that combine those textured knitting stitches in innovative ways, and a main project section that includes pullovers, cardigans, afghans, and more. If knitters can cast on and bind off, knit and purl, they can make the majority of projects in this book. No knitting needle acrobatics necessary!
