Book - The Art of Landscape Knitting by Anne Le Brocq
Knit beautiful, bespoke blankets that reflect your favourite landscapes with this original pattern collection. Designer, Anne Le Brocq, has created a collection of 50 knitting patterns for different kinds of landscape and weather features so whether you live near the mountains or by the sea, you can knit your own landscape blanket. The 50 pattern swatches include wet sand, pebbles, footprints, rain, clouds, different kinds of tree foliage, moutains, sand dunes and more. There are written instructions and numbered charts for each of the landscape swatches, as well as stunning photography showing the inspiration for each of the designs. These swatches are the perfect 'on-the-move' project because you can knit one square at a time and join them together to make a blanket. But there are also instructions for how to use the swatch patterns as vertical and horizontal repeats if you prefer to knit a blanket in one rather than joining the individual swatches at the end. As well as the pattern swatch library there are five finished blankets to illustrate how the pattern swatches can be used. All of the blankets have instructions for making them using the swatches as well as the knitting them in one so you can choose your preferred method. The author uses a wide range of different yarns - including gradient yarns - to show how colour and fibre can change the effect of the finished blanket. This unique concept will inspire you to knit your landscape and create beautiful, bespoke blankets that evoke the world around us.
