Brimming with artistic inspiration and filled with 20 nature-inspired  patterns for gorgeous knitwear and joyful pieces for the home, this creative and original book invites you to step inside artist, designer and knitter Dee Hardwicke’s world. Illustrated throughout with beautiful watercolours and painterly photography, opening up The Knitted Fabric: Colourwork Projects For You And Your Home is like being invited to Dee’s studio to look through her sketchbooks and watch them come to life. As Dee explains, “I find the process of knitting very similar to painting, with each stitch being a brushstroke of colour. As stitches loop together, they create a knitted fabric, a kind of narrative of art, making and the people and landscapes that inspire me”. Dee takes a completely fresh and unique approach to traditional knitting books. This superbly designed book is a unique celebration of the way that knitting can bring us together by using art and decoration to tell our stories is something to treasure.

Dee Hardwicke is an artist, designer and knitter whose work is inspired by her passion for colour and by her love of the British landscape.
