Grab your knitting needles and take a peek into the mind of one of the knitting world's most
innovative designers with Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy.
Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the
reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches Bristol uses as a designer to explore and
push the endless possibilities of knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary
which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by
bringing all the methods together to help the reader evolve an idea into a finished pattern.
Each stage of the book is complemented by a knitting pattern, which serves as an example of
the methods explained in that section. Fifteen garments and accessories that carry Bristol’s
signature classic tailoring and innovative techniques are paired with yarns by talented
independent dyers such as Spincycle Yarns, Madelinetosh, and The Uncommon Thread.
Bristol Ivy has captured the imaginations of knitters for years with her patterns published with
Brooklyn Tweed’s Wool People, Quince & Co., Pom Pom Quarterly, Interweave Knits, amirisu,
and many more. Originating from a workshop of the same name that she has been teaching and
developing for four years, Knitting Outside the Box is her first book, exceeding the boundaries
of the traditional pattern book. For any knitter who has mused on the question ‘What if?’, Bristol
encourages an experimental approach, with her generous spirit and enthusiasm imbued in
every exercise and explanation.
