Originating from her workshop of the same name, which we’ve been lucky enough to have Bristol teach a few times, at Loop! This book goes beyond patterns. Knitting Outside the Box is part creative exercises and part insight into the design process. Bristol guides the reader (and knitter) through the techniques she uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting.
For any knitter who has mused on the question ‘What if?’, Bristol encourages an experimental approach.
Each stage of the book is complemented with a knitting pattern, which serves as an example of the methods explained in the book. Fifteen garments and accessories are paired with yarns by talented independent dyers such as Spincycle, Madelinetosh, Quince & Co, Woolfolk and Uncommon Thread.
We have long loved Bristol’s design aesthetic! A couple of years ago Bristol collaborated with Susan on our Teazel Cardigan, which is much loved and a shop favourite!
The book will be available from November 5th but we are taking pre-orders now!
