Exploring Color in Knitting is a masterful book that guides you through choosing, blending and contrasting color in order to transform ordinary designs into cherished pieces that stand out from the crowd. The book opens with a guide to make the reader comfortable with what color does and how to approach color depending on your personal style and taste. In the chapter on "Understanding Color," you will find lessons and explanations on how to work with color as well as the differences between value, hue, undertones, tint, tone and shade. "Proportions and Stitchwork" covers how to deal with color in ratios and relation to one another in regards to striping, patterning and different stitch patterns. Decorative embellishments and color are covered in the "Color and Decoration" section where you will find information on working with beads, embroidery, buttons and edgings. The chapter on intarsia not only covers techniques to make knitting with multiple colors simple and straightforward, but also introduces color to shaped designs, entrelac, cables and bobbles. Fair Isle is another technique that gets its own dedicated chapter where the importance of color value is discussed in detail when choosing colors for stranded motifs. Informative tips on creating palettes from scratch as also covered and allow you to tailor motifs to your personal color tastes. Last but not least, a section on creativity shows how you make your own mood boards to help you re-color projects. Exploring Color in Knitting also includes 11 projects that each focus on a different aspect of color knitting.
