Shibori Knitted Felt: 20 Plus Designs to Knit, Bead, and Felt by Alison Crowther-Smith published by Interweave Press (April 1, 2008)

This is a beautiful book, Interweave always do such a great job in presenting their books. Beautiful photography and simple styling that show off the classic designs in their full glory.

The shibori aspect comes in by using the same techniques used in traditional shibori dyeing, tying, folding and scrunching and then applying these techniques when fulling a knitted item to create unusual and interesting effects.

The projects in the book are all suitable for intermediate knitters with some also suited to beginners. Projects include a bobble cushion, a pleated scarf, an artist ‘islands scarf’ which can be made as a shibori felted sampler suitable to experiment with different techniques. There are also some lovely bags, placemats and brooches too. Lots here to experiment with.
