Product Description

AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary takes an unexpected look at stranded colorwork with 200 new motifs. These non-traditional colorwork charts are perfect for the creative knitter looking to break away from the ordinary. Derived from graphic design elements, these fresh motifs include everything from geometric mountains, waves, and spirals to modern bikes, skulls, and sheep.

Dive into stranded colorwork with confidence with a section on reading charts, working floats, and choosing colors. Learn how stranded colorwork can be used in design with five accompanying projects including mitts, cowls, and sweaters. Plus, use your imagination to modify, deconstruct, and combine the unique motifs to create your own designs.

Be inspired to break the rules and use charts in creative ways with AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary.

About the author:

I'm Andrea and I'm passionate about making and exploring. I live in Victoria, BC and spend most of my time creating knitting patterns and planning workshops, but I also adore being outside cycling and hiking, and I really enjoy sewing. I love the idea of having a full-on handmade wardrobe, though I'm not sure when I'll learn to cobble. Being a part of the making community has been incredibly valuable to me and I hope my contribution of patterns and workshops inspires other makers. 

I've written a whole lot of patterns independently, and I've designed for great companies like Brooklyn Tweed and Tolt Yarn & Wool. I've also written two books published by Interweave/F+W! Rugged Knits is a book of over twenty patterns inspired by my love for the outdoors and practical knitwear, and Alterknit Stitch Dictionary is stitch dictionary of 200 colorwork charts & five patterns!

I love pretty much everything about knitting, so you'll find sweaters, socks, leggings, hats, shawls, and lots more among my patterns. I'm all about a good challenge, so I happily dive into all the techniques like lace, colorwork, and cables, though I can knit Stockinette for miles too. My patterns are meticulous and clear and I offer free pattern support, so send me an email if you ever have a question about one of my designs! 

Happy knitting!

- Andrea
