One + One: Scarves, Shawls, and Shrugs is by Iris Schreier, author of Modular Knits, Reversible Knits & Lacy Little Knits, teaches the knitter to incorporate two different skeins into their knitting project. Yes, that’s all it takes is two skeins!
- There are over 25 projects designed by Iris Schreier and 14 other designers.
- Included designs are scarves, cowls, capes, shawls, wraps, and shrugs.
- Techniques include corrugated rib, Mobius cast-on, short rows without wrapping, adding beads as you knit, provisional cast-on, and more.
- Stretch expensive yarns by combining them with a lower-priced one.
- Learn to integrate two different colors of a single yarn, as in Annie Modesitt’s Slip Stitch Wimple.
- Fabulous Yarns has dedicated an entire section of their site exclusively to One + One knitting projects, and with the help of Artyarns, they’ve built kits and stocked the yarns for every project in the book.
- Take those one skein only precious yarns that you just had to buy and combine two of them and create something beautiful. Whatever two skeins you have in your stash, this book will likely have a project to use up those skeins.
