Knitting guru Norah Gaughan shows you how to make rectangles, squares, and simple shapes—then fold, twist, and pleat them to create unique, fashionable clothes and accessories
Simple shapes are ideal for the novice knitter, but the clever folds and fastenings of Knit, Fold, Pleat, Repeat will intrigue the experienced crowd too. These techniques are easy to learn, and the design possibilities—and new combinations that come to light once you begin—are nearly endless. Each design starts with a simple rectangle, square, or triangle and builds from there: to fold, drape, or twist the shape into a garment or accessory, and to introduce pleats, welts, and slices along the way. Every pattern has a gorgeous high-fashion style, and the projects are so addictive to knit—you may find yourself making the same garment in new colors and yarns so you'll have one for each season. The book includes thirty-six patterns in all, each with variations.
