Cecelia Campochiaro will present “The Making Marls Story”
Cecelia visited the Guild last year and gave a well-received talk regarding Sequence Knitting. She is returning virtually to the Guild to discuss her new venture, Marled Knitting, and has published a book Making Marls. Read what Modern Daily Knitting had to say about Cecelia and her new book here.
About Making Marls
Making Marls is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multi-strand handknitting and the creation of marled fabrics. The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and colored fabrics. As with her first book, Sequence Knitting, Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries.
In Making Marls, the word “sequence” is used to describe the order of marl stripes, rather than the stitch sequences in Sequence Knitting. There are common-strand sequences, bridging sequences, sequences from gradient sets, complex sequences, and even improvisational sequences. The book can be approached on three levels:
· A reference book about multistrand handknitting
· A pattern book with over thirty “recipes”
· A source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colors
