Notes from Sandi: One of the things that makes the Modern Quilt Wrap so intriguing and fun to knit is its modular nature--each of those jewel-like sections can be knit all by itself for a great carry-along project. However, the magic of this sort of modular knitting, called "domino" knitting (or "mitered square" knitting) is that you can join the squares as you go! This week, we have one of the experts in domino knitting to share some of the techniques and tricks with us: Vivian Høxbro.
Today's post features an excerpt from her book, Domino Knitting, which you can buy online from us, or from your favorite local yarn shop.
Want to experiment with domino knitting? We have a new free pattern for you, excerpted from Domino Knitting--the pretty potholder shown here. The pattern gives you full instructions to get you started on this fun technique. Download the free pattern for the Domino Potholder now!
Vivian Høxbro is an expert in the unusual techniques of both domino knitting and shadow knitting. Purchase her book Domino Knitting to explore modular knitting at its best, or purchase Shadow Knitting to discover how light and dark illusions can bring forth stunning effects in everything you knit!
As always, we encourage you to give your local yarn shop some love--and your business--whenever possible!
