"Put your own personal stamp on your knitting."
In Stitches, Helga Isager was inspired by “the idea that you need not limit yourself to one single craft, but…[you] can combine elements of embroidery, weaving, and knitting in one design.” In each of these crafts, you still work with ‘stitches!’
With a collection of ten patterns (eight garments and two accessories), Helga explores how the look of a straightforward, stand-alone design can change by adding embellishments using embroidery stitches or elements of weaving. Her hope is that this book “will inspire beginners and seasoned knitters alike to grab a tapestry needle and some remnants and put their own personal stamp on their knitting.”
