Hand-dyed Yarn Craft Projects

Front Cover
Guild of Master Craftsman Publications, 2005 - Crafts & Hobbies - 155 pages
A dazzling new world of color opens up for knitters and crocheters when they discover how to dye their own yarn. Best of all, only basic kitchen equipment is required. Here are easy-to-follow instructions for creating customized color combinations--from subtle hues to wild, exotic blends--and for using them in 12 eye-catching projects, arranged progressively. Rainbow dyeing is the main technique shown, but spraying, resist, yarn painting, and overdying are also thoroughly covered, and readers are encouraged to experiment freely. The knitted projects range from a Colorful Woolly Scarf to a Super-chunky Child's Jumper, and the crocheted items include such stunners as the Ultrawarm Chenille Scarf, Beaded Wrist Purse, and Sleeveless Top in Wild Thai Silk.
