AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary by Andrea Rangel takes an unexpected look at stranded colorwork and includes 200 new motifs. This hardcover book includes non-traditional colorwork charts that are perfect for the creative knitter looking to break away from the ordinary. Derived from graphic design elements, these fresh motifs include everything from geometric mountains, waves, and spirals to modern bikes, skulls, and sheep.

You'll dive into stranded colorwork with confidence after reading the section on reading charts, working floats, and choosing colors. You'll also learn how stranded colorwork can be used in design with five accompanying projects including mitts, cowls, and sweaters. Use your imagination to modify, deconstruct, and combine the unique motifs to create your own designs.
