In the course of her career as an internationally recognized authority on knitting design and instruction, Alice Starmore has acquired a remarkable collection of charted designs for color knitting. This treasury features a choice selection of her source material, arranged into four parts: (1) Traditional patterns from Europe, Russia, and South America (2) Adaptations from textiles and other art, including Japanese porcelain and Celtic metalwork (3) Alice Starmore's own geometric and nature-inspired originals (4) Practical instructions that explain how to incorporate these motifs into unique designs.
Suitable for beginning as well as advanced color knitters, these charted designs can also be adapted to other crafts, including weaving and embroidery. The first U.S. publication of Charts for Color Knitting, this new and expanded version explains how to incorporate color into your work and features color photographs of knitted swatches created expressly for this Dover edition.

Alice Starmore is probably the best designer of fair isle patterns. This book is not a typical "pattern" collection of sweaters, etc. Rather it is more of a reference of hundreds of motifs one can choose from to add one's own style to a project.
