Kate Haxell and Sarah Hazell - All books by this author

The Knitted Alphabet includes —
  • Patterns for 26 different alphabets, including numbers, punctuation, emoticons and dingbats
  • Detailed illustrations and step-by-step instructions for each alphabet, including a knitted swatch and easy-to-follow chart for every letter
  • Ten inspiring simple projects with full patterns
  • Instructions for various knitting techniques including: intarsia, Swiss darning, textured stitching and more
More than 1040 patterns. Approximately 1500 color photos, illustrations and diagrams throughout.


From the reviews:
****Starred review “Knitters and sewers will welcome this extremely detailed, comprehensive and creative look at personalizing thread-based projects. The authors take painstaking care to ensure that the 26 alphabets are not only charted…but with a paragraph or so explaining techniques and possible hiccups, especially for novices. At the end, the authors explain and illustrate more elaborate techniques, from beading to stranding, and conclude with a list of abbreviations and yarns. This inspired book is first class.”
