Elise Duvekot
Elise Duvekot is a knitwear designer whose enthusiasm for novel techniques led to the stitch patterns presented in her book Knit One Below — One Stitch, Many Fabrics. Her inspiration comes from geometrical patterns and from the many beautiful colors and yarns that are available. The style of her work can best be described as traditional in workmanship, while modern in color and design.

Elise also divides her time between the Old World (The Netherlands) and the New World (Canada). In addition to knitting strands of various yarns together as a designer, she knits words of various languages together as a translator. Knitting and translating both provide ideal environments in which to be creative and productive.

4019 Easy How do your Socks get Striped with Knit One Below? Learn the knit-one-below technique as you make socks with stripes that are vertical rather than horizontal.

5228 Intermediate Avoiding the dreaded purl blips Are you one of those knitters who would like to avoid the purl bumps that are visible on the reverse side when you change colors? The right side looks right, but the wrong side looks wrong. Would you like both faces of your shawls to look good as you fling them around your shoulders? Scarves, blankets, shawls and lapels are just a few of the items that will benefit greatly from these techniques.

Join Elise and you will learn how Knit One Below and a number of other techniques can overcome this dilemma. Some options are subtle, some are decorative, but all are preferable to those dreaded purl blips. Let’s get together and make the wrong side right.
