Sark - Kate Davies and Tom Barr
Sark brings us 12 patterns including six garments and six accessories designed for DK / Sport weight yarn along with a special interview with Norah Gaughan, author of the Twisted Stitch Sourcebook. Featuring a technique of twisting stitches that produces fabric with a beautifully textured and embossed appearance, each pattern explores the creative potential of the twisted stitch in pieces that are engaging to knit and easy to wear.
There’s a comfortable oversized gansey, a smart cardigan with panels and puffed sleeves, a pair of yoke sweaters, a cozy wrap and an appealing range of quick-to-knit one-skein accessories, all designed with the clear instructions and clean finishing details that are hallmarks of Kate Davies' work. The book also includes a collection of thought-provoking monochrome images, as Tom Barr explores ideas of pattern and structure in the natural world and built environment.
A celebration of collaborative, creative making, Sark is a book as beautiful as it is useful.
