Knit Your Story in Yarn

How to Design and Knit an Heirloom Quilt, Shawl, Bag, and More


Book Description

Flowers are often symbolic and intertwined with life’s most special occasions, from weddings and christenings to idyllic summer afternoons spent making daisy chains. To preserve memories of these special occasions, Dee Hardwicke has graphed motifs of a variety of flowers and leaves that can be used to knit intarsia motifs. She teaches you the basics of knitting intarsia, and then provides patterns to knit these motifs to create a gorgeous and meaningful quilt, shawl, project bag, pillow, bunting, or other project. Once you’ve learned the basics, if you want to go beyond Dee’s motifs, she provides the chart and instructions to create your own.
