We are thrilled that Bristol Ivy's new book, Knitting Outside the Box, includes a pattern with Cormo Sport! The Jemison Cowl calls for one skein of Cormo Sport (400 yards) paired with two skeins of Spincycle Dyed in the Wool. Named after Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space, the compressed row gauge of brioche pulls against the expanded row gauge of reverse stockinette to create ripples and folds.
From the publisher: Grab your knitting needles and take a peek into the mind of one of the knitting world’s most innovative designers with Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy.
Originating from her workshop of the same name that she has been teaching and developing for four years, this exceeds the standard of the traditional pattern book.
Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches Bristol uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by bringing all the methods together to help the reader evolve an idea into a finished pattern.
Knitting Outside the Box features 15 garment and accessory patterns using yarns from a variety of yarn producers.
