Om boka

Prepare to be amazed by textile artist and pattern designer Britt-Marie Christoffersson's fantastic work and learn how to use embroidery to give knitted garments a new lease of life. Using just 18 simple stitches such as running stitch, couching, blanket stitch and rya knots, Britt-Marie creates over 250 patterns that will inspire you to even more creativity.



Embroidery on knitwork can involve knitting a new piece to be embroidered, but it can also be interesting to revamp existing clothing. Even commercially produced sweaters, hats and mittens can be embellished with a needle and yarn.



If you wish to embroider knitted garments you can cover the whole item with stitches, or let a few strategically placed details work as a decoration. If there is a hole in the garment you can cover it with embroidery. Using the explanatory drawings in the book, you can renew and alter exactly as you wish. Any knitted item can be enhanced, and if you tire of the embroidery you can simply unstitch it!



260 beautiful stitched items are shown, all displaying amazingly different effects that can be achieved on knitting with just a needle and a length of wool.

Om forfatteren

Britt-Marie Christoffersson is the foremost researcher of practical knitwork in Sweden. After studying at the School of Textiles in Boras and Konstfack, she became a founding member of Ten Swedish Designers (10-gruppen) in 1970. After sixteen years her interest in knitting became her main focus and she dedicated herself to the practical applications of knitwork. This resulted in the innovative work that she is so well known for. Britt-Marie has taught at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) and at the Friends of Handicraft (Handarbetets Vanner) in Stockholm and is a popular course leader.



In 2017 Swedish furniture retailer Ikea paid homage to the work of the 10-gruppen by using some of their lively designs on bed linen, fabrics and other items, including Britt-Marie's Jazz design.
