The craft of knitting is devoted to making useful things. The craft of embroidery is devoted to making useful things beautiful.Anna Zilboorg brings these two crafts together in Splendid Apparel: A Handbook of Embroidered Knits. Anna Zilboorg creates richly textured knit fabrics then adds embroidery for emphasis, color, detail, even sheen. This handbook includes a dozen embroidery stitches and a library of 58 textured knit patterns. Swatches—photographed both as they come off the knitting needles and after embroidering—show that transformation and provide a further springboard for exploration.Sometimes Anna couldn't stop, and the swatch grew into a sweater. These times turned into 18 patterns that incorporate her favorite garment details: Almost-seamless panel construction and Perfect and Almost-perfect Buttonholes. Anna's innovative approach for working Twisted Traveling Stitches—not circularly, but back and forth—makes it possible to knit one narrow strip at a time, join as you go, and end up with Trillium, the spectacular vest detailed on the cover.
