Hand Knitting - new directions examines this traditional craft in a bold, refreshing way, to appeal to novices and experts alike. As well as explaining the basics of the techniques, the author explores knitting as a means of creating a textile rather than simply making a flat pattern, and encourages experimentation with unusual materials, as well as the more conventional knitting yarn.
Alison Ellen originally trained in textile design, specializing in weaving and printed textiles, then started designing and making hand-knitted garments in the 1980s. She teaches around the UK, as well as selling her own work through galleries and craft fairs. Alison is on the Craft Council's selected list of craftspeople.
