The Knitted Fabric by Dee Hardwicke
‘Brimming with artistic inspiration and filled with patterns for gorgeous knitwear and joyful pieces for the home, The Knitted Fabric invites you to step inside Dee Hardwicke’s world. Illustrated throughout with beautiful watercolours and painterly photography, this book brings the pages of Dee’s sketchbooks to life. As Dee explains, “I ﬁnd the process of knitting very similar to painting, with each stitch being a brushstroke of colour. As stitches loop together, they create a knitted fabric, a kind of narrative of art, making and the people and landscapes that inspire me”. Just like the 20 nature-inspired designs within it, The Knitted Fabric is something to treasure.
Dee Hardwicke is an artist, designer and knitter whose work is inspired by her passion for colour and by her love of the British landscape. Dee’s designs have been used in exclusive collaborations with partners including the National Trust and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Her previous knitting books include A Story in Yarn: How to Design and Knit an Intarsia Heirloom Quilt (Quail Publishing, 2016) and several titles with leading British yarn producers and designers Rowan. Each design begins life in her sketchbooks.’
