Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy


Grab your knitting needles and take a peek into the mind of one of the knitting world's most innovative designers with Knitting Outside the Box by Bristol Ivy.

Part pattern book and part insight into the design process, Knitting Outside the Box guides the reader (and knitter) through the creative approaches  Bristol uses as a designer to explore and push the endless possibilities of knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by bringing all the methods together to help the reader evolve an idea into a finished pattern.

Each stage of the book is complemented by a knitting pattern, which serves as an example of the methods explained in that section. Fifteen garments and accessories that carry Bristol’s signature classic tailoring and innovative techniques.
