Discover the pleasures of designing and building custom-made yarn by spinning it yourself. Yarnitecture is specially written for knitters who want to spin their own custom-designed yarn to fit their project, beginning with a beautifully prepared fleece batt. Readers will learn how to match yarns with knitting patterns and how to re-create a commercial yarn, as well as how to combine commercial and hand-spun yarns in a single project.
Popular teacher and author Jillian Moreno leads you through every step of yarn construction, with detailed instructions and step-by-step photos showing you how to select the fiber you want (wool, cotton, silk, synthetic), establish a foundation, and spin a beautiful yarn with the structure, texture, and color pattern that you want. In addition to teaching you the techniques you need for success, Moreno also offers 12 delicious original patterns from prominent designers, each one showcasing hand-spun yarns.
Jillian Moreno has been involved in craft publishing for more than 20 years. At Interweave Press, she launched four magazines, including Interweave Knits.
