Featuring small projects that are perfect for the beginning knitter, this book covers how to make modular squares that can be connected to create a variety of eye-catching designs. Including wearable designs and accessories–from capelets, hats, and scarves to bags, pillows, and quilts–these projects involve relatively few stitches, can be completed in a short amount of time, and are perfect for using up small amounts of leftover yarn. The modular domino squares can be combined in an infinite number of ways to create a wide variety of patterns, and mitered squares can be connected to achieve a patchwork effect similar to traditional quilts. Most of the projects are made with wool yarn knitted at a slightly looser gauge than recommended by the manufacturer so that the finished piece can be felted in the washing machine, creating unique and contemporary looks.
Vivian Hoxbro has been designing knitwear for more than 20 years and is the author of Domino Knitting.
