Different from other spinning books, Yarnitecture is specially written for knitters who want to spin their own custom designed yarn to fit their project, beginning with a beautifully prepared fleece batt. Readers will learn how to match yarns with knitting patterns and how to re-create a commercial yarn, as well as how to combine commercial and hand spun yarns in a single project. Full colour photographs illustrate the planning process, fiber preparations, specific spinning and plying techniques, and stress free ways of succeeding with colours and colour blending. Features 15 knitting patterns by prominent knitwear designers, including sweaters, socks, shawls, and accessories; projects are "aspirational but not out of reach".
