Kristin Nicholas Design


Book - Color by Kristin

Color by Kristin is a book with many aspects that offers something for every knitter:

  • An inspiration book full of lush color photos
  • An educational book full of information for how to design with color, design your own colorwork charts, how to cut a steek, how to embroider your knits for extra "wow" appeal, and more
  • A pattern book chock-full of over 20 projects, many sized for the entire family

Color by Kristin contains two separate glossaries: one for stitches and one for colowork charts. With these two resources you can modify any of the knitting patterns in the book and become your own designer.

The projects range from the very easy Little Shepherd's Scrap Yarn Scarf to the more intricate Southwest Style Wrap with Sleeves. There are many small items for knitting on the go, including the Greek Slipper Socks, Bloomsbury Gauntlets, and Mother-Daughter Mittens. In addition, there are several projects for your home or gift-giving like the Java Jacket, Pompom Bolster, and more.
