Let's say you want to personalise or embellish an existing knitting pattern. Perhaps it's a plain sweater and you want to add edging to the cuffs or put a sunflower or an aeroplane motif on the pocket of a child's cardigan or incorporate a textured stitch, such as Fair Isle, to the yoke of a knitted jacket...the possibilities for embellishment are endless. 1000 Great Knitting Motifs will help you choose a colourful stitch pattern and/or motifs to create a unique garment. To help whittle down the huge number of options, stitch patterns suitable for children are flagged with a little icon. Each chart comes with data indicating the number of stitches and the number of rows required to repeat a single pattern. Repeats are shown on the charts. Some charts are shown in different colourways. There are 1000-charted motifs to pick, from traditional ones used by knitters from Northern Europe to the Middle East to new classics from around the world. Use a favourite pattern but change the look so it can be worn on a different occasion. Add an icon, a pretty flower or a symbol to suit the wearer's character, and design the perfect birthday gift for a loved one that will be cherished for years.
