Not sure what kind of project would suit a beloved yarn? There will be a mixture of a little theory and plenty of examples, to help you answer these questions.

Louise loves designing accessories that will show off the colours in your yarn. And she loves giving you options so that you can make your project your own. Her book, Knit Play Colour, leads the knitter through different ways to play with each design. She encourages knitters to explore yarn choice, different textures and colour ideas. Louise believes patterns should be clearly written and a pleasure to knit. Her designs have proved popular on Ravelry, regularly featuring in the hot list.
