Embroidery on Knits is a hardback, 200 page, in-depth guide to contemporary stitching with and on wool, explaining every step of the process — from planning to finished project. It is a source of inspiration and knowledge for crafty beginners and savvy stitchers alike.
Transform your knits with a handful of simple embroidery stitches: a cosy cardigan embellished with bright flowers, a dragonfly on the front of a sweater and mittens with plants climbing up the back of the hand. This timeless embroidery book features 18 nature-inspired templates, generously complimented by insightful tips and ideas on how to use them. The 18 embroidery project templates are presented on a separate fold-out poster in size A1.
"Embroidery has a reputation for meticulous diligence, a good thing in many ways, but that is an optional part of what makes it beautiful. My approach is a little different: I love to liberate the stitches, letting them grow bigger and wilder as an expression of my inner and outer worlds. My aim is to provide a trail of knowledge and inspiration you can follow.” JUDIT GUMMLICH
