Here's a knitting book with a difference. It shows and tells how to leave patterns aside and make beautiful clothing and accessories from simple geometric shapes. Following the modular--or no-pattern--method, knitters can forget about complicated increases and decreases, and they won't have to labor over an intricate pattern book. Instead, they learn how to create sweaters, bags, hats, cushions, socks, scarves, and ponchos using just a few easy-to-learn stitches. Step-by-step color photos instruct on knitting geometric shapes, then on joining them together to create stylish garments. Each stage of the no-pattern process is explained and supplemented with advice on measuring and calculating yarn requirements, as well as on creative ways to mix and match colors and shapes. The authors present ten easy-to-follow projects for making items knitters will be proud to wear or give as gifts. Also featured are suggested variations on each project plus advice on how needlecrafters can create their own unique designs. "No-Pattern Knits" is a how-to volume that belongs on every knitter's bookshelf. Approximately 250 color photos.
