Learn how to enhance and embellish knitted garments with beautiful embroidery stitches using just a needle and wool. Embroidery on Knitting: Inspirational Modern Designs by Britt-Marie Christoffersson will show you how to use embroidery to put new life into your knitted garments. Using simple stitches such as running stitch, couching, blanket stitches and rya knots, textile artist and pattern designer Britt-Marie Christoffersson creates a wide variety of patterns that will inspire you to even more creativity.

Embroidery on knitwork can involve knitting a new piece to be embroidered, but it can also be interesting to give a new look to existing knit or crochet clothing - perhaps to a piece that has seen better days. Even commercially produced sweaters, hats and mittens can be embellished with a needle and yarn! It can also be fun to try out embroidering on different materials, including unconventional ones.

If you wish to embroider knitted garments you can cover the whole item with stitches, or let a few strategically placed details work as a decoration. If there is a hole in the garment you can cover it with embroidery. Using the explanatory drawings in the book, you can renew and alter exactly as you wish. Any knitted item can be enhanced, and if you tire of the embroidery you can simply unstitch it!

Almost three hundred beautiful stitched items are shown, all displaying amazingly different effects that can be achieved on knitting with just a needle and a length of wool

About the author of this book
Britt-Marie Christoffersson is the foremost researcher in Sweden of practical knitwork. After completing her studies at the School of Textiles in Borås and Konstfack, she became a founding member of Ten Swedish Designers (10-gruppen) in 1970. After sixteen years in the group her interest in knitting became her main focus. With great passion and determination she then dedicated herself to the practical applications of knitwork. This resulted in innovative work, three touring exhibitions and three books. Britt-Marie Christoffersson has taught at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) and at the Friends of Handicraft (Handarbetets V&aauml;nner) in Stockholm and is a popular course leader.
