From the boundless imagination of one of today's most innovative knitwear designers, Nicky Epstein - a book devoted entirely to the infinite possibilities of the knitted flower.
Knitted flowers have long been used to adorn garments, either as accents or as the focus of a knitted piece. In this book you will be sure to find a flower for every mood and in every hue - from the timeless American Beauty rose, to the radiant sunflower, to fields of lovely florets. Small, simple, and time-efficient, flowers are the perfect project for knitters who want some instant gratification.
Interspersed with the flowers are instructions for garments and home accessories that benefit from a floral touch. Take your pick from projects such as the ultra-feminine cardigan, embellished bridal gloves, or a vintage-inspired cloche.
Each flower is accompanied by gorgeous photographs, clear instructions, and a list of materials. Of course, soon you will want to choose your own yarns and make flowers to suit your fancy, adorn your flowers with feathers or beads, or simply let them bask in their own simple grace.
