The book is divided into three interior design stories:
Folk Tales was inspired by the current trend for folk art within interiors. Looking at Russian and Eastern European traditional design, Jane has included 8 projects within this section of the book. Patterns include both a knitted and a crocheted floor cushion, a crochet beaded sofa pillow, a knitted cushion with crochet bird embellishment and dorset buttons, a round short row shaped knitted cushion cover, a felted crochet 'rug' and a crochet bedspread.
Two Tone was inspired by the monographic designs of Coco Chanel. The designs within this section use black, white cream and grey shades of yarn and provide the knitter and crocheter with the perfect vehicle to choose their own colour palette. Projects include a crochet lace pillow slip cover, a crochet lamp shade accessory, two knitted sofa cushions and one crochet cushion cover.
Time for Tea was designed with the 'make do and mend' ethos of a bygone era in mind. Yarn shades are pretty and feminine with pinks and light green shades being the key colour choices. Projects include 2 round knitted cushions, pretty lace crochet doilies and three embellished and beaded cushion covers.
Published by leading craft publisher Collins & Brown, this book is a must have for any serious knitter or crocheter. All projects use yarns from the Rowan range and beads from the Debbie Abrahams Collection.
