“This book gives you everything you need to create a bespoke work of art in knit form. KnitOvation is sure to become a favorite for designers and beginners alike.” —Kate Burge, Spincycle Yarns
“Andrea Rangel’s AlterKnit is what helped me get started in colorwork, and KnitOvation is what makes me love colorwork. The designs are fun and make you think of taking sweaters in an entirely new direction. Her writing and observations take the guesswork out of designs and make colorwork less scary and more exciting.” —Dana Williams-Johnson, Yards of Happiness
KnitOvation is just as much fun and whimsical as it is informative and inventive. Would recommend to knitters of all levels!” —Candice English, The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers

“Andrea’s fresh take on colorwork motifs is just the thing to inspire color play in your knitting. But what I love most is that she doesn’t stop there—she goes the extra mile in KnitOvation to chat all about yarn choices and how it will impact your colorwork, including fiber content, yarn construction, and how the yarn was dyed. What a treasure!” —Andrea Mowry, knitwear designer, Drea Renee Knits
KnitOvation is a thorough guide to colorwork that is also sure to ignite a creative spark in knitters of all experience levels.” —Amanda Milne & Fiona McLean, Knit Social
KnitOvation is a must-have resource for any knitter who loves to create their own unique colorwork pieces. From the innovative charts and beautiful patterns to tips and tricks on yarn choices and techniques, this is a book that inspires knitters’ imaginations.” —Tracie Millar & Jodi Brown, The Grocery Girls

As you will discover with this book, the ability to spark your creativity and give you the blueprint you need to express yourself is an integral part of her contribution to the knitting world. Explore all the stitch patterns and have fun adding them to your favorite knitted garments!” —Julie Asselin, Julie Asselin Yarns
KnitOvation will captivate your imagination with 150 contemporary motifs arranged as all-over patterns—but easy to use on their own. Andrea will show you how! KnitOvation includes an informative section on yarn choice with knitted examples, a techniques section with excellent line drawings, and a thorough discussion on adding motifs to your own knitting projects. Stunning life-size photographs seal the deal; this book is a gem!” —Mary Jane Mucklestone, knitwear designer & author

“Another glorious selection of colorwork stitch patterns from the very clever and fun minds of Andrea Rangel and her designing-partner husband. But this book goes much further: just as valuable is the discussion of different yarn fiber and colorings and how they work with colorwork patterning. Plus, there’s a handful of charming projects and guidance from Andrea on how to adapt them with your own choice of patterns and colors.” —Kate Atherley, knitwear designer & author
“Andrea has written an invaluable and trustworthy resource that both sparks a knitter’s imagination and demystifies knitting modern colorwork motifs. KnitOvation guides you through choosing the right yarn for colorwork as well as how to incorporate the motifs into patterns ‘you’ create. It brings a fresh joy to any knitter’s library and really, who can say no to feeling inspired by such a wonderful book filled with motifs to satisfy any whim!” —Shannon Cook, knitwear designer & author
KnitOvation is helpful, clever, interesting, inspiring, and more. The clear and simple charts cover every category you could think of and many you would never have imagined. It’s a fun and exciting book, a must-have for every knitter’s reference library. I can’t wait to cast on!” —Susan B. Anderson, Barrett Wool Co., knitter & author

“Andrea’s second book of knitted motifs is as charming as it is useful! The stitch patterns in KnitOvation are accessible, clear, and best of all—they have a sense of humor. A delightful addition to every colorwork knitter’s library!” —Meghan Fernandes, co-founder & creative director, Pom Pom Quarterly
“From the elegant to the eccentric, from the simple to the silly, there is a motif here to inspire every knitter. Of course, you’ll find a lovely array of nature-inspired designs, but it’s not every stitchionary that features rubber duckies or a magic 8 balls. Need a hat idea for your New York City friend? Look no further than the rat motif! Andrea also includes a wealth of practical tips to help knitters pick out the right yarn, master techniques, and even provides design inspiration.” —Patty Lyons, knitwear designer & author
