"For intermediate knitters and up, or an adventurous beginner wanting to stretch his or her skills." --"Planet Purl" Inspired by techniques and motifs around the world, sixteen designers have interpreted folk knitting to produce designs for hats, scarves, mittens, socks, shawls and sweaters. By and large this works very well, I found a number of the designs made me wanted to knit them straight away. In addition you can discover how to work with colour or embellish plain knitting in the design notebook. The designs are beautifully photographed and the instructions and charts are easy to follow. You will need to substitute yarns in the UK, so make sure to match the tension.-KarenPlatt.co.ukVom Verlag:

Join talented top designers including Kristin Nicholas, Kate Gilbert, Annie Modesitt, Pam Allen, Leigh Radford, and more as they reinterpret ethnic and global influences into today's fresh styles. Within the pages of Folk Style knitters will find items for women, children, babies, and the home. Patterns include a patchwork jacket, felted mukluks, a Slavic stovetop hat, a tribal baby carrier, Fair Isle socks, Nordic star pullover, shibori neck wrap, felted gauntlets, a Mexican floor pillow, Peruvian tunic, and much, much more. Filled with luscious lifestyle photos and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, Folk Style has everything the knitter needs to create amazing styles. The most special feature of the Interweave Press Style series is the Design Notebook section, and Folk Style will not disappoint. This chapter will share author Mags Kandis's distinct take on color, motif, detail, and style, all drawing reference from the contributed designs. Special focus will be placed upon simple how-to and will include Fair Isle and intarsia knitting, felting, duplicate stitch and embroidery, and various other embellishing techniques.Whether it be a simple one-colored, textured pair of mittens, or a multicolored tunic, Folk Style has it wrapped up in fabulous ethnic influence.
