Making Marls by Cecelia Campochiaro

Making Marls” is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multistrand handknitting and the creation of marled fabrics.

The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and colored fabrics. As with her first book,“Sequence Knitting”, Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries.

The book can be approached on three levels:

A reference book about multistrand handknitting.
A pattern book with over thirty “recipes”.
A source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colors.

Regardless of whether one is new to knitting or a seasoned expert, this book will delight and inspire.

About the author
Cecelia Campochiaro appeared on the knitting scene in 2015 with her debut book, “Sequence Knitting”. Knitting was a casual pastime until she had an ah-ha moment in 2010 and realized that interesting textured fabrics could be created by the simple repetition of a sequence of stitches. This idea evolved and led to her writing “Sequence Knitting”, which is a reference book about this mindful approach to knitting.

In the years since “Sequence Knitting” debuted, she has continued to develop new ideas in knitting. “Sequence Knitting” is about texture, and her new book, “Making Marls”, is about color. Making marls, the act of working multiple strands together as one, is an old technique, but has rarely been written about as an important technique in handknitting.
