Summary

Learn how to enhance and embellish knitted garments with beautiful embroidery stitches using just a needle and wool.

Prepare to be amazed by textile artist and pattern designer Britt-Marie Christoffersson's fantastic work and learn how to use embroidery to give knitted garments a new lease of life. Using simple stitches such as running stitch, couching, blanket stitches and rya knots, Britt-Marie creates a wide variety of patterns that will inspire you to even more creativity.


Embroidery on knitwork can involve knitting a new piece to be embroidered, but it can also be interesting to give a new look to existing clothing - perhaps to a piece that has seen better days. Even commercially produced sweaters, hats and mittens can be embellished with a needle and yarn. It can also be fun to try out embroidering on different materials, including unconventional ones.


If you wish to embroider knitted garments you can cover the whole item with stitches, or let a few strategically placed details work as a decoration. If there is a hole in the garment you can cover it with embroidery. Using the explanatory drawings in the book, you can renew and alter exactly as you wish. Any knitted item can be enhanced, and if you tire of the embroidery you can simply unstitch it!

Almost three hundred beautiful stitched items are shown, all displaying amazingly different effects that can be achieved on knitting with just a needle and a length of wool.
