Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting

Starmore, Alice

Newtown, Connecticut, U.S.A.: Taunton Pr, 1993. Gift inscription by previous owner on half title page. Signed by author on title page. If you own ONE book on colorwork, this might just be the best choice. While Starmore deals with Fair Isle style knitting only, the techniques are useful for all kinds of knitting design. In addition to the history of Fair Isle knitting, Starmore explains the use of OXO patterns mixed with "peerie" or bands of small patterns that are mixed with the larger patterns and provide a pleasing rhythm to the design. The fact that only two colors are used per row is hard to believe when you look at how Starmore mixes subtle color changes to yield some amazing results. She also shows the inspiration for the colorways, from a handful of wet sea pebbles, to a moor landscape, to a flea market display of bric-a-brac. You can find colorways all around you once you get an eye for how Starmore looks at the world. The book has useful charts for OXO and peerie patterns and a section on how to construct classic pullovers, vests and cardigans.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Fine. Illus. by Color & b/w Photos & Illustrations.
