Tanis Gray is a knitwear designer who enjoys using colour in her work. With the increase in designer yarns and the multitude of colours available it is not always easy to know how to use them to best effect. This book includes 10 lessons and projects using ombre, stranded colourwork and texture to help both the new and experienced knitter do just that. Techniques covered include intarsia, Fair Isle, thrumming, lace and cabling. There is also information on modular knitting, short-row shaping and knitting-in-the-round. The latter part of the book comprehensively covers basic knitting techniques with clear instructions and photographs to illustrate. There are even illustrations to show the difference between English and Continental ways of holding yarn. Tinking (un-knitting) and frogging (ripping out) also get a mention, something you don't often see in how-to books but so very necessary! This book would be perfect for knitters who wish to increase their repertoire of skills and techniques. Having personally never come across thrumming, the mittens would be an ideal first project, whilst the lace shawl would be the perfect way to show off a single-gradient yarn ball. Either for yourself, or as a gift combined with a ball of gradient yarn, this book would be a good addition to your collection. -- Judith Evans (Birmingham & District Guild) * Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers * A great book, the patterns are easy to follow. -- Jo Udall * Customer Review * really is a book which can be used by beginners & more experienced knitters as there are projects to suit all levels. Each project has an introduction which explains what skills will be involved & the aim of the project. This page includes a list of what items you will need to complete the project, the tension and the approximate finished size. Each pattern also includes a section on pattern notes giving helpful tips about why certain techniques are used at points in the pattern. Where a new skill is introduced there are clear photographs with equally clear instructions given which I find straightforward to follow. Additionally, the book includes an introduction to colour theory & choosing yarns whilst at the back are many helpful basic knitting techniques explained very clearly & the abbreviations used in the patterns. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wanted to put more colour into their knitting but feels a little lacking in confidence, this is the guidance you have been looking for -- Louise Waters * Customer review * Gradient Knits by Tanis Gray ..... Love this book has a hive of information ...beautifully illustrated pictures with easy to follow wording from how to cast on to easy to follow charts for the patterns. This book has a lovely array of knits that make you want to pick up your needles and have a go at making a pair of soxs or mittens or maybe start by knitting a hat. Then for those that want to learn to knit (which can be very daunting) this book will teach you step by step . A book to enjoy and share ....... -- Pauline Forster * Customer review * beautiful book by the publishers - but this has not swayed my thoughts on this colourful book. I have been knitting for a number of years now but was looking for something new to do, when this book arrived on my doorstep....... It has ten projects, all of which have an explanation at the beginning (lesson). There are pictures to show you what she is talking about. The patterns are clear, including any important notes. For those who are still getting to grips with knitting there is a chapter at the end of the book that explains basic knitting techniques, again this includes pictures where appropriate. Overall I found this a very well thought out book. There are some easy projects, but there are definitely projects for the more advanced knitter. Fantastic book. Well worth a look! X -- Nicola Taylor * Customer review * Thank you to Search Press for sending me a review
