"Shibori Knits" highlights the intersection between shibori and knitting, offering 20 patterns that utilise this transformative technique. Internationally acclaimed knitwear designer Gina Wilde guides knitters through three dynamic ways to add shibori to knitting. The first method uses physical resists (marbles or corks) that prevent specific areas of knitting from felting; where there are no resists, the garment does felt, creating unique fabric with bobbles and dimensionality. Another method uses nonfelting fibres as resists - for instance, a silk yarn knit with a wool yarn - to create windowpane effects or even mimic woven strips of fabric when felted. The third method creates ruffles and spirals when the fibres are worked in more than one direction; when felted, the work will shrink differently in the alternate directions. The textures created from each method offer a unique way to redefine felting and bring the beautiful and unexpected world of shibori to the knitter. Knitters of every skill can explore this exciting method of creating art out of knitting. With detailed information on fibres and their shibori potential, a primer on technical felting concepts and a thorough resource guide, "Shibori Knits" shows knitters how to create colourful, sculptural and delicate projects, transforming knitting into something new.
