"Hand knitting is accessible to anyone: it doesn't need special equipment or space, and is an immensely satisfying way of creating your own clothing, accessories or furnishings.
This book explores the technique from the very beginning, suggesting ways of casting on and off, and covering the basic stitches. It then works through exercises to gain an understanding of the design possibilities, including knitting in the round, picking up stitches and knitting in different directions.
Hand Knitting - new directions takes a unique approach to kniting as a way of creating a textile or fabric, rather than looking at knitting as making flat patterns. Symbols are used to indicate the character produced by different stitches, such as the stretch, thickness, openness and drape. It also encourages experimentation with different materials - linen, rag, wire, string - and even the potential of using the knitted fabric in textile art.
This book can be taken as a starting point for novices or as a reference book for experienced knitters. Both are encouraged to forget knitting-pattern conventions and to develop their skills using different stitches to create shaping, pattern and texture, and to chart their own new directions."
