Ethnic Knitting Discovery

“Superbly designed and illustrated for beginning to intermediate level knitters, . . . Ethnic Knitting Discovery, with its color tips and knitting-specific histories, is an especially recommended addition to both personal and community library Needlecraft instructional reference collections.”
—Midwest Book Review

“If you’ve ever wanted to take the leap to designing your own sweaters, this just might be the inspiration you were waiting for.”
—Kim Smith, Knitting Matters blog

“'Donna Druchunas has written exactly the sort of book I love: not just a collection of patterns, but an introduction to an entire genre of knitting with the goal of helping readers design their own patterns. . . . This book is a good investment not only for those interested in ethic knitting, but for aspiring designers as well.”

“Druchunas has discovered that knitting without patterns, and using the time tested ethnic techniques, is often easier than following line by line instructions. Using the skills learned in this book, you’ll be able to design and knit beautiful, one-of-a-kind sweaters that fit perfectly.”

Ethnic Knitting Discovery is not a hip, funky, not-your-grandma’s knitting book. It’s not much of a pattern book either. I couldn’t be more pleased! Unlike some other knitting books on ethnic traditions out there . . . , Ethnic Knitting Discovery is geared more for the basic knitter, who may want a more streamlined, step-by-step approach to a project. There are no line-by-line written patterns in this book, but the instructions are presented . . . so that the individual knitter can create and knit an original piece without having to start completely from scratch.”
