Dimensional Tuck Knitting – Tracy Purtscher

27,95

Dimensional tuck knitting, developed by Tracy Purtscher, is an ingenious new technique that looks complicated yet is deceptively simple. All a knitter must do is knit a field of stockinette with a few precisely placed knit or purl stitches that act as markers, pick up a stitch here and there, and then work those stitches in a simple manner. This takes advantage of the flexibility of knitted fabric, creating a series of manipulated welts that bend, fold, and double back on themselves for vibrant three-dimensional texture.

With step-by-step instructions and illuminating information on every aspect of the technique, this volume provides a comprehensive understanding that will inspire knitters of all skill levels. More than 85 patterns, each with written and charted instructions, will dazzle; and the collection of 10 projects—ranging from a mohair shawl to a cozy blanket, from a bulky pullover to elegant fingerless mitts—will stun. So, give Dimensional Tuck Knitting a try. It’s the perfect new technique for all yarn weights, all projects, and every knitter who loves texture.

Tracy Purtscher has been creating garments her entire life, beginning when her father taught her to sew at a very young age. By the age of seven, she was mending clothing for the members of her large family of seven children; a few years later she was making most of her own clothes. In high school, Tracy taught herself how to crochet with a paper clip and a piece of string while in detention. Knitting, however, eluded her for many years until she discovered a vintage magazine with a how-to section for continental knitting that finally made things click.

Since she took up knitting needles, Tracy Purtscher has been designing stunning garments. Her designs have appeared in numerous publications, including knit.purl, Simply Knitting, Noro, and Vogue Knitting. In 2013, she was a finalist on the Fiber Factor, a Project Runway-esque
knitwear-design reality web series. In 2015, she won a Chanel-inspired design contest in Vogue Knitting magazine for Burke, a chic pullover with an allover mosaic pattern and unique zipper detail. Tracy also runs the knitting blog Stringativity, which features her designs and musings on knitting and creativity.
