About the Author

Lumi Karmitsa writes, draws and uses her hands for almost anything to mould the world into a more beautiful place. Three years ago, just to try it out, she knitted a pair of colourwork knitted mittens for her friend and got hooked! Realizing you can paint with threads just as well as with a brush, Lumi began to design patterns that defied knitting norms. She is a bestselling author from Finland.

Reviews

Lumi Karmitsa's clear, easy-to-follow guide demonstrates how to knit colourful gloves and socks. Featuring a cornucopia of animals, flowers, lettering and contemporary motifs, each project is made using bright, easy-to-work yarn. The patterns have been drawn as simply as possible, with step-by-step instructions and pattern charts included. With ideas suited to a variety of skill levels, this colourful guide is both practical and fun.

* Craft Focus Magazine, Issue 71 (Feb/March 2019) *

The patterns in this book are most definitely unique, from dogs and cats, to Jesus and skulls, all in stranded colourwork. While the patterns look complex, they all use only two colours per row and the charts are large and clear. While most of the patterns are given for only one size, they are not all the same shape and there are different ways of working the thumbs or the heels, which is useful. Various yarns are used but they are all described by their Craft Yarn Council standard yarn weight so it would be easy to substitute where the more difficult to obtain ones are used. Another book of fun things to knit and useful for making gifts.
