Author(s): Debbie Bliss
From Debbie Bliss, the UK's foremost knitwear designer, comes this fabulous new collection of 26 contemporary designs for your home. Inspired by three themes - seaside, modern country and urban - Debbie has created beautiful accessories and garments to suit every mood and occasion. Evoking the pleasures of a sunny weekend by the sea, there are cable cushions for lazing on the sand, a moss stitch rug for the beach hut, and a practical duffel bag for collecting treasures from the shoreline. Debbie's modern country designs conjure up the delights of a snug farmhouse kitchen, with slippers, tea cosy and kettle holder, plus a luxurious throw to warm up the cold winter nights. Then for urban living, there's a chic and funky handbag, a colourful plaited scarf and a cool polkadot cushion that will add style to any living room. All the patterns are easy to knit and have clear, step-by-step instructions. And with Pia Tryde's stunning photography throughout, this is the ultimate book both for Debbie's fans everywhere and for today's generation of young knitters.
