East & West - Mission Falls
The colourwork in this collection is definitely inspired by the textiles of India and beyond. Saris, carpets, ancient embroidered robes ... Simple geometrics that are timeless in design. Spicy colours that warm and thrill. Embellishments of stitchery and shisha mirrors.
The West is certainly evident in all the solid coloured garments. Lush Celtic cables and textures are hallmarks of the British Isles. The traditional comfort of a counterpane quilt transformed. For a bit of fun, the author threw in, what she felt was the most Western of symbols ... the Cow.
The book includes full instructions for 19 original designs using Mission Falls 1824 Wool (10ply) yarn. Alternatively Mission Falls 1824 Cotton (10ply) yarn can be substituted to make a lighter garment. The book is illustrated using colour photographs of each of the designs and the patterns and charts are clear with most including information for producing multiple sizes.
