Colourways 40 Collection, Machine Knitting
This collection of stitch patterns is suitable for machine knitters with 40 stitch punchcard or electronic machines. It is an eclectic selection of textile designs, ranging from a monochrome Japanese-style willow design, stylized florals, sophisticated checks and tweedy-looking designs, optical illusions and abstract designs echoing traditional tapestry and brocade. There are small designs suitable for children, as well as interesting abstracts with a masculine feel, and last but not least the beautiful rose design - a sohpisticated flower motif with an art deco feel.
The designs in the book are fairisle designs using only two colours in the row with colour changes all at the same side. Most of the designs have short floats, but there are a few with the odd longer float which comes up every now and again and can be easily managed by hooking the yarn up from a previous row to cover the float. The willow design has very short floats indeed!
