Looking for some rustic designs for the modern nest? Ruth Cross can help you add 'personality and interest to any room' with "Knits at Home". You will find 24 wonderful patterns in this lovely photographed book where the texture just jumps off the page.
Knit pillows, quilts, blankets, lace window panels, cable footstools, cushions and more. You will knit traditional as well as new stitches, Ruth has developed. This book will walk the beginner through the process and have the experienced knitter challenging herself with freeform items.
Ruth's section on manipulating stitches and introducing new techniques will add to your style. Tip: three elements of design is enough. That can mean a novelty yarn, possibly a stripe pattern and a trim. Her designs are modern and rustic at the same time. Read between the patterns to get the most out of this book. Not only will your home be transformed but so will your knitting design style.
Ruth gives you encouragement in adapting and exploring your own ideas of design. Think organic home accessories and all the healthy promise it has to offer.
