Throughout his years working as a knitwear designer, Brandon Mably has had the good fortune to journey around the world presenting his hugely popular “Color in Design” workshops. Wherever he went, Mably took inspiration from the local crafts and colors. Now, he shares some of the ideas he’s gathered in a collection of unique projects bound to tempt any knitter. Beautiful as these pieces are, they’re also straightforward, with most featuring a basic stockinette stitch and his own simple color technique.
The 20 items include a Guatemalan bird-patterned slipover, Indian felted bag, Apache waistcoat, South African hands cushion, and Australian zebra swing jacket. In addition, Mably provides a lively account of his adventures in a visual travel diary that pays homage to the countries he’s visited.
