On this occasion Susan merges her combined love of vintage knitting with colourwork designs to bring you 25 vintage colourwork patterns from the 1920s to the 1950s all updated and multi-sized, with all garment patterns sized from 28-60 inch (70-155 cm) chest.
Susan has selected 25 knitting patterns from her own archive of vintage knitting patterns to offer a wide range of beautiful, wearable colourwork pieces; the majority of the patterns chosen are garments with a small selection of essential colourwork accessories included. Susan has chosen a combination of sweaters, cardigans, vests and more, with some well-known pieces amongst them.
Patterns will include full colour charts for colourwork sections with a separate chart for each size where appropriate. Every design will also include a clear schematic. Some patterns will be updated to be knit in the round and may include steeks; instructions for knitting flat will be included for a number of patterns.
The book will include a techniques section for the different colourwork techniques features in the book and will be accompanied by a selection of essays written by Susan focussing on the period or the style reflected in the knitted pieces.
In A Stitch in Time Vol 3 - The Colourwork Edition, Susan builds on her experience writing The Vintage Shetland Project and more recently, Evolution, to bring you a timeless volume of exquisite projects and clear, well-written patterns.
The designs will be modelled on a variety of models including Susan to show just how wearable these vintage pieces can be.
This book is a celebration of Susan's combined love of vintage and colourwork and shows us why Susan is renowned for her 'vintage' knitting knowledge.
