The Definitive Guide to Working with Hand Dyed Knits
A hand-dyed skein of yarn is not just one color but an entire color story. Laura Bryant shows how that story can have a happily-ever-after ending—every single time.
Artisan hand dyers build patterning potential — a color repeat — into each skein of yarn. When the repeat stacks as the yarn is worked into fabric, patterning happens. But that patterning is not always attractive. Artful Color, Mindful Knits, offers ways to create consistent, repeatable, understandable, and PLEASING results with the Magic Number. Learn how stitch gauge, color repeat, and stitch count work together to create intentional patterning.
When you want the colors to blend, Laura gives stitch choices and strategies that overcome unwanted pooling or patterning. Additionally, learn to place colors on a color-weight scale and recognize contrast using Laura's key concepts for working with color. These alone are worth the price of admission.
