In Helga Isager's new book, STITCHES, she combines knitting, embroidery and weaving. The book has 10 patterns for womens’ designs: 1 jacket, 1 cardigan, 1 dress, 4 sweaters, 1 blouse, 1 hat and 1 scarf. All the patterns in this book can stand alone, but by adding embroidery or weaving you can change the look significantly. Embroidery with many strands of yarn can add an almost three-dimensional finish and you can renew your sweater – even long after it is finished – by adding a new colour or by using a completely different material.
The book is rich in beautiful photos and illustrations show used embroidery techniques.
