Dimensional Tuck Knitting by Tracy Purtscher
Dimensional Tuck Knitting by Tracy Purtscher was the new book we learned all about on the Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird.
Tracy Purtscher may be best known up till now as one of the finalists in Skacel’s Fiber Factor competition a few years ago. Of that experience she says that of all the she learned, she learned most about herself. A lot of the work she did was done in private and without her family being aware! Hard to believe that they would miss the creation of some of her fabulous pieces or her time investment.
Of her new book, Tracy says: “One of a knitter’s favorite things to do is create something with sumptuous texture, and the tuck stitch, a simple technique that adds surface design to a knitted garment, is the ultimate way to do just that. Tracy Purtscher has explored and perfected this technique in her exciting new book, Dimensional Tuck Knitting. In it, knitters will learn the basics of the tuck stitch and just how easy, versatile, and fun it is. This collection of more than 85 patterns and 10 projects pushes the boundaries of what the tuck stitch can do, offering unique textures that have never been seen before. Purtscher’s visionary treatments create faux cables, ropes, leaves, shells, and many other vibrant three-dimensional patterns. Perfect for any gauge of yarn, the tuck stitch is exceptionally versatile and well suited for any project. A stitch dictionary, tips, and step-by-step technique instructions are all included, making this the ultimate authority on the amazing tuck stitch.” You can purchase the book through Amazon with Marly’s #Affiliate Code
