Cecelia Campochiaro’s first knitting book, Sequence Knitting, is a thorough and fascinating exploration of 1-row patterns. We’re thrilled to have her coming to Loop this September to tell us all about it.
From her website –
The concept of Sequence Knitting is simple: take a sequence of stitches and repeat them again and again. Depending on how you repeat them, different fabrics can be created. While a few of these fabrics are familiar, many are new to the knitting world.
Beginning with 1-row patterns, the book delves into the possibilities of this technique, expanding into methods for creating complex designs that can be worked back and forth, in the round, or in shapes like triangles. The book includes stitch dictionaries with over 190 fabrics, many of which are new and reversible, as well as over 40 patterns for simple and elegant accessories.
Cecelia’s offering two workshops during her visit. The first is an introduction to sequence knitting and the second gets you started on your first project. The first workshop is a pre-requisite of the second. When you register for either workshop, you can pre-order the book, which is regularly $60, at a 20% discount.
