Fill your home with these 30 contemporary hand-knitted designs by Melanie Porter. All these projects are easy to make and will inject style and colour into your interiors. There are three colour schemes to choose from - blues and greens in Cool Collection; reds, oranges and yellows in Hot Ideas; and whites, creams, and grays in Pale Palette - so there is something for all tastes. You can start with smaller projects, such as the bolster pillow cover, flower vase cosy or striped clock cover, and then move onto something a little larger, such as the rope knit basket, chunky knit rug or covered footstool. With a comprehensive techniques section, you'll discover how to use giant knitting needles, and how to measure up furniture for a knitted cover, as well as all the basics of knitting, so even beginners can try their hand at these fabulous ideas.
