Kaleidoscope - the new book by debbie abrahams and jane crowfoot is finally here! (from monday 15th april 2013)
The knitting and crochet skills of debbie and jane are combined together in this must have collection of sophisticated designs for the home - there are many projects to choose from including cushion covers, blankets, bed runners and bags - all of which have been designed with a contemporary flair making them ideal accessories for the modern home.
Debbie and jane have designed 24 projects - the knit projects have been designed by debbie and the crochet projects by jane - all using lovely vibrant shades of yarn from the rowan range - some of the projects are large scale, such as the bed sized blankets and throws, whilst other projects use just a few balls of yarn and would make ideal gifts or weekend projects.
Debbie and jane's desire to work on a project together has been long standing, indeed the design inspiration for this title comes from a workshop trip they jointly tutored at least 5 years ago when they visited South West France - there is currently a massive trend for knitted and crochet home ware - bright colours and geometric patterns are currently very fashionable making it the perfect time for 'Kaleidoscope' to appear
debbie and jane share the same passion for vibrant colours and surface design and they feel that their projects sit wonderfully together as a beautiful contemporary and on trend home collection - each design is fully illustrated with vibrant photographs throughout and the hard back format gives the book perpetual 'coffee table' appeal - kaleidoscope is an inspiring collection of home accessories that are fun to knit and crochet, with projects to suit all abilities.
Debbie and jane are really excited about kaleidoscope and see it as the first in a series of collaborative titles - we hope you will like it too!
