THE KNITTED FABRIC
Bursting with artistic inspiration and filled with patterns for beautiful, cheerful and quirky knits for your home, this creative and quirky book invites you into the world of Dee Hardwicke.
Illustrated with beautiful watercolors and painterly photography, The Knitted Fabric brings the pages of Dee's sketchbooks to life.
As Dee explains, “I find the process of knitting very similar to painting, with each stitch being a brushstroke of color. As they stitch, they create a knitted fabric, a sort of narrative of the art, the making, and the people and landscapes that inspire me.”
Just like the 20 nature-inspired designs it contains, this unique book is something to treasure.
Dee Hardwicke is an artist, designer and knitter whose work is inspired by her passion for color and her love of the British landscape.

Her previous knitting books include A Story in Yarn: How to Design and Knit an Intarsia Heirloom Quilt (Quail Publishing, 2016) and several titles with leading UK yarn producers and designers Rowan. Each drawing comes to life in his sketchbooks.
