Pick and Mix
by Joanne Scrace of The Crochet Project
Pick and Mix: colourwork designs with endless variations
Using this book, you can create your own completely unique design by pairing your choice of sweater, cardigan or hat with your choice of four colourwork patterns and your choice of four main stitch patterns. They all work beautifully together without the need for any extra maths. We’ve even included the maths and pattern writing assumptions so you can have a go at designing your own stitch patterns if you’d like to.
Each stitch pattern is written and charted, and we have included lots of advice throughout the book to help you create the perfect item even if it is your first garment. Although the colourwork looks complicated, each pattern uses only one colour at a time (no stranding) and we’ve added some tips on how to avoid getting into a tangle. There’s also the chance to make a patch pocket or a hat to get practice with the colourwork pattern before you dive in.
We want this book to be for everybody and every body. The patterns are suitable for age 2 upwards, are all unisex and offer inclusive sizing and fitting options.
Stitch options for the Pick and Mix patterns, you can use these patterns for the yoke of the sweater or cardigan or for the hat.
