Somewhere within the tightly bound belief that everything has been done before, a little finger hole of wiggle room can be found to tease out a loose end and twist a different tale.
Marlisle is a simple, yet novel approach to stranded knitting, where two colours magically become three by using yarn held double.
Anna Maltz has designed 11 contemporary and wearable circular knits to introduce this technique to adventurous knitters of all levels. These cosy projects deftly show how Marlisle can be used to combine different weight yarns, create scattered motifs and mask jogs in unexpected ways. The results are strikingly graphic, textured, inspiring and intriguing.
Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting is a beautiful, 160 page, full-colour, litho-printed book packed with photographs, schematics, knowledge, anecdotes and opinion to get you started on your Marlisle adventure.
