Over 70 Creative Projects to Make, Remake and Remix
It's more important to be cool and look good than to stick to the rules! This is a book on knitting and crochet that will inspire knitters and crocheters to think outside of the box. It challenges them to experiment and break with tradition-- to mix new methods, material, techniques and designs and enjoy the relationship that develops between design, texture, color, and shape.
Knitters and crocheters are encouraged to create new combinations with what they already have on hand--left over yarn, lacy placemats, and even vintage-style pot holders mixed with things bought new or second-hand. Or to try transforming something old into something completely new! To work on a whole garment--to embellish with embroidery or pom-poms, to mix plastic and fabric with rivets and sequins--or to just add little touches to finished garments. To explore the possibilities of mixing, matching, and restitching with yarn and fabric to create brand new garments and accessories.
Knitprovisation is an invitation to all crafters to create a style that is their own. The possibilities are endless and the creative urge grows once you get started. It's a must have for all adventurous knitters, crocheters and sewers!
