Field Guide No. 16: Painterly
For every knitter who loves playing with color, Kaffe’s designs are extraordinarily fun. Now, we introduce a whole new world for knitters used to working only stranded colorwork: Simple intarsia.
These rhythmic, geometric designs are the perfect starting place for knitters who are new to the technique. We include lots of tips and tricks for knitting intarsia, as well as complete charts and clear instructions.
Kites Throw: The longer you gaze at it, the more subtleties you discover. The Kites Throw is a stunning project—simple triangles that tumble and turn for a dazzling effect. It comes together quickly because the triangles are large and rhythmic to knit.
I-Cushions: The perfect canvas for trying out Kaffe’s geometric patterns. Complete knitting and finishing instructions included.The color play is endless with these cushions. No sofa will be the same once it has a batch of these brightening it up.
Watercolor Cowl: A simple rectangle of vibrant color becomes a cowl with one short seam. Kaffe shows it in two colorways—change the two background colors, and the effect is totally different.
Village Scarf: Absolutely glorious. Kaffe pares cottages down to elemental geometry, and the result is a village we’d all like to live in.
Cityscape Scarf: Squares combine to form a gorgeous abstract skyline. The large blocks of color make this a perfect starting point for working intarsia.
