"A sourcebook for multi-strand handknitting."
Immersive, informative, and incredibly intriguing, Making Marls: A Sourcebook for Multistrand Knitting is a deep, fascinating dive into knitting with multiple strands of yarn in multiple colors.
This book is at once a reference of handknit marls, a guide to working with many colors, and a collection of over 30 patterns. Writer, knitter, and designer Cecelia Campochiaro hopes you use this book as a starting point for inventing your own colorways, fabrics, and textures.
With a little bit of math, a soupçon of history, a comprehensive exploration of color theory, and profiles of artists and designers making waves in the world of marled textiles, this book is a pleasure to read. And with its full color photography, diagrams, and guiding graphics, it teaches us so much!
