Knitting guru Norah Gaughan shows you how to make rectangles, squares and simple shapes – then fold, twist and pleat them to create unique, fashionable clothes and accessories
Simple shapes are ideal for the novice knitter, but the clever folds and fastenings of Knit, Fold, Pleat, Repeat will intrigue the experienced crowd too. These techniques are easy to learn, and the design possibilities – and new combinations that come to light once you begin – are nearly endless. Each design starts with a simple rectangle, square or triangle and builds from there: to fold, drape or twist the shape into a garment or accessory, and to introduce pleats, welts and slices along the way.
Every pattern has a gorgeous high-fashion style, and the projects are so addictive to knit – you may find yourself making the same garment in new colours and yarns so you'll have one for each season. The book includes 36 patterns in all, each with variations.
