Knitting on Top of the World: The Global Guide to Traditions, Techniques and Design

Nicky Epstein is a needlework star, and this is her most important and wide-ranging collection: a worldwide tour of knitting traditions and techniques, including colorwork, cables, lace, intarsia, and more. She explains the origins and traditional uses of each one, and then goes on to reinvigorate and recombine all these beloved styles in her inimitable way. The result: more than 40 innovative patterns collected in an attractively designed book. There's a Celtic Pullover with braided twisted rib strips; a Snowflake Tunic from the Far North; a Felted Tyrolean Capelet with appliqué, cord, and balls; a Spanish Rose Pullover with lace accents; a colorful Peruvian skirt; and an oversized, zipped Navajo Blanket Jacket. Colorful maps and historical photos make this volume a visual treat, as well as an invaluable tool for knitters seeking inspiration.
