Description Surface Works de Jenny Dowde:

"Surface Works" is about using plain knit or crocheted backgrounds to which surface decoration can be added, and the projects in this book were created with that in mind. Packed full with information, "Surface Works" contains over 90 original textured and creative stitch motifs to make, plus 34 new projects including 7 garments with full templates and instructions. Jenny's fantastic 'how-to' section is included plus a comprehensive stitch guide.There are three main categories used throughout: Altering the Surface - this can be as simple as adding another thread to an existing one- Collaging (or Layering the Surface) - adding objects to the background in combination or isolation such as beads, lace, cloth, braids, knit and crocheted motifs etc- and Interrupting the Surface - this entails working in a certain technique such as garter stitch or double crochet for a few rows and then introducing something different, e.g. changing from knitting to crochet. The end result of working with these methods can be elaborately ornate, totally crazy or subtle and elegant. From NSW, Australia, Jenny Dowde completed 6 years at art school and a course in machine knitting. Jenny has lectured on Colour, Design and Creative Knitting at knitting seminars around Australia. She has participated in Australian Textile Fibre Forum computer design workshops. She has also made polymer clay buttons for a designer knitwear company and taught polymer clay workshops at various Fibre Forums in Australia. In 1997 she discovered the wonderful medium, "scrumbling" or freeform crochet, with the only equipment requireed being a hook and lots of yarn! She now combines knitting with crochet in her freeform work.
