    Gradient Style by Kerry Bogert immediatly spoke to me, and yes I ll admit that gorgeous cover was one of them But also because of the concept I think that gradient yarns are the best thing ever I love bright color and I love evento use multiple colors and the way this book uses them just makes me happy It s so muchspecial than a store bought sweater and you can fit it to your own favorite colors so yeah it is just awesome Enough gushing, let s talk about the book The first chap Gradient Style by Kerry Bogert immediatly spoke to me, and yes I ll admit that gorgeous cover was one of them But also because of the concept I think that gradient yarns are the best thing ever I love bright color and I love evento use multiple colors and the way this book uses them just makes me happy It s so muchspecial than a store bought sweater and you can fit it to your own favorite colors so yeah it is just awesome Enough gushing, let s talk about the book The first chapters are dedicated to how and why gradient works, with the use of the color wheel It was very interesting and I learned a few things, but it s still kinda hard for me to see why something works or not I would ve liked to see some examples that had gone wrong and why that was the case and what to donif the store doesn t have yarn that d work In the back there was an extensive guide with drawings and I think I m finally understanding the extra stretchy bind off Yay for pictures And then, the projects this was my favorite part of the book You know how some patterns look sooo awesome but are totally over the top for real life Or those patterns where you think yeah this is just like the one in the store These patterns are exactly inbetween they are awesome, with unique touches and yet totally wearable There is a variety of projects though the most are scarfs wraps and pullovers cardigans, which is fine by me since it showcases gradient the most I m giving this book 4 stars because I would ve liked a littleinfo on the gradient itself but overall I really liked it I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    Many thanks to Netgalley, F W Media and the dietary Kerry Bogert for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review My opinions are 100% my own and idependent of receiving an advanced copy.Working with colour can be one of thechallenging things when knitting Especially today when you have so many options besides just switching yarn colours There are beautiful ombre, speckled, gradient, variegated and handprinted yarns that it can be difficult to know how to handle each case Many thanks to Netgalley, FW Media and the dietary Kerry Bogert for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review My opinions are 100% my own and idependent of receiving an advanced copy.Working with colour can be one of thechallenging things when knitting Especially today when you have so many options besides just switching yarn colours There are beautiful ombre, speckled, gradient, variegated and handprinted yarns that it can be difficult to know how to handle each case You want to showcase the colours at its best and avoid things like pooling Sometimes a written pattern will take these things into account, however, what if you want to substitute a yarn, or change up the colours If you are new to colour knitting, or don t have much experience, I don t think Gradient Style is the place to start They also include 8 patterns to get you started.Although it touches on some important things to think about, this book is not very comprehensive when it comes to explaining colour, and how these different kinds of yarn work when knitting them up It has a colour wheel and talks about contrasting and Complimentary colours but really doesn t go into much detail Really, any of the techniques or ideas that it talks about, it doesn t do a great job at a thorough explanation I hoped that maybe in the patterns they would give some examples of how to switch up the colours, or if you wanted to substitute yarns, but it didn t do that either Most of the patterns are using yarns that have colour built into them already, so you aren t even learning how to use colour there either I don t need a shawl pattern that simply uses a variegated blue yarn and wow I m colour knitting No, I don t think so So if you looking for something comprehensive, or simply looking for something to give you inspiration, you might want to look elsewhere This is pretty basic, without giving you the basics If I can t learn something new, then I want to be wowed by the patterns and they are okay, but nothing special Overall, I was disappointed
