A whole new dimension of texture!
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 dazz≤ 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.
