Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Self-striping yarn is increasingly popular with crafters, but many knitters lack the knowledge to work with the yarn effectively. Carol Sulcoski’s latest book begins with a comprehensive technical section that explains how to use and manipulate self-striping yarn—something no previous pattern collection has offered. After reading the accessible instructions and tips, knitters will be inspired to cast on one of 24 new and original designs—11 beginner, 11 intermediate, and two advanced—including shawls, scarves, sweaters, fingerless mittens, and more. Featured designers include Fiona Ellis, Brooke Nico, Sandi Rosner, Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton and more.
Part of Lark’s “Yarn Studio” series, which includes Sock Yarn Studio and Lace Yarn Studio.
“Self-striping yarns feature long, alternating repeats of color, creating a striped (or patterned) effect when knit. The latest in Sulcoski’s (Sock Yarn Studio) series provides numerous options for working with self-striping yarns in new and exciting ways. An overview of basic suggestions for working with self-striping yarns is followed by patterns for fingering, DK, and worsted-weight yarns. Sulcoski and her contributors focus on investigating the possibilities of these yarns by using them in larger projects such as sweaters and shawls; combining them with solid yarns in stranded or intarsia projects; or exploring direction using entrelac or knitting sideways.  VERDICT This collection shatters the myth that self-striping and self-patterning yarns are only useful for tubular projects such as socks and mittens.” —Library Journal
