Strip & Knit with Style Using Ribbons of Fabric
Take your knitting to a whole new place with these clever projects, each one made with strips of fabric.
Strip & Knit with Style using ribbons of fabric! Learn to use fabric to create strips and then to knit with them. Discover the properties of different fabric materials. Start with surprising fabrics--cotton, rayon, linen, hemp, silk, wool, polyester, even lace, faux fur, even polar fleece!
Then learn how to treat fabric by painting, dyeing or discharging (which is when you actually remove the color from the fabric). From there, is a discussion of how to cut or tear your fabric into strips, join the strips together, basics of how to knit and then finally how to knit with the strips acknowledging their specific properties (will they unravel or not for example).
Start knitting by following the simple directions to make sixteen sophisticated projects. Add paint, buttons, feathers, and more to make unique garments and home accessories.
