A beautifully illustrated and easy-to-follow collection of unique and modern knitted accessories featuring rich colors and textures from nature's palette Enjoy a clean, sophisticated take on knitting with Rustic Modern Knits. Yumiko Alexander's collection of 23 knitted accessories takes its inspiration from the natural world. Her knitted headbands, shawls, wraps, mitts, hats, and more all reflect her interest in nature's beauty--verdant leaves, flowers, shells, waves, and colors inspired by sunsets and stone. Versatile knitting designs allow a shawl to become a scarf or a cape by making just a few slight adjustments. Stitch patterns and easy techniques have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the knitted fabric. Yumiko's knitting designs are fashion-forward but never trendy--they exist in a sphere all their own. Despite or perhaps because of their organic and rustic feel, they are very much at home in a cosmopolitan setting, and should appeal to knitters looking for beautiful and unique knitting projects to wear.
