In his first book, Mably, manager of Kaffe Fassett's studio, dramatically revolutionizes any stitcher's perspective on color by applying the three steps used in Fassett's global workshops. Eyes are critical; by copying an upside-down painting on a postcard in thread, knitters begin to realize that more than 12 hueful combinations are possible. Here, his inspiration starts with his world travels; nine countries, from Australia to the . provide enough visual stimulation to fill at least a dozen books. I like it because it takes ideas from what we see around us.

Knitting with the Color Guys (2012). Kaffe Fassett, perhaps the most celebrated textile artist in the world today, is known above all for his mastery of color.

This book is a work of art. Not only does it contain beautiful and complicated patterns of the most beautiful colors, it has travel photos representing the country that the designs are inspired from. It reminds me of the lay-out and design of Kaffe Fassett's books. It is a smorgasbord of knitting color for the eyes. It is a book to look at again and again. It makes me hungry for yarn, for color, for texture, and travel.

The book contains designs inspired from different countries: Australia, Great Britain, Guatamala, India, Italy, Peru, South Africa, the United States, and Vietnam. It also has small (and I mean very small) sections on color theory and techniques of knitting color.

The patterns are for experienced knitters but the book is for any knitter who wants inspiration, loves color and appreciates beauty.

There is nothing quite like opening a new book especially one that holds so many different lessons.
After learning from the dvd format I am now comfortable trying it all. I love this, it covers so many different techniques and they are all relatively easy to follow. The road to discovery is wide open to anyone who is inclined to learn this craft.

Wow. I Love this book. It is Great inspiration and the patterns are so colorful. Can't wait to get out knitting needles and start knitting.

The big problem with this book is that the sweaters are too big so you have to redesign them to fit (in most cases!).The cover sweater is a case in point. Also, some of them are needlessly difficult. But still there are enough to make it a worthwhile purchase plus I enjoyed the travelogue comments. Is that KF wearing the Steps vest on p.158? He's aged a lot if that's him. Mably, whom I've never met, seems like a very nice man and he's learned a lot from his friend Kaffe. The sweaters I like, and might even make: Landscape jacket, p.52, Squares jacket, p.84, Striped throw, p.94 (no pattern needed really). St.Mark's jacket, p. 100, Peruvian vest, p.110 (really nice one), Diamond throw, p. 118, Harvest vest, p.140, glacier jacket, p. 150.

So that's 8 projects. Everything is charted out and lots of schematics too. Also, the color choices are good and photos lovely.

Having once made his Checkers sweater, I was really burned out by that complicated design so the ones I like here are easy to make. The yarns are all Rowan but one can easily substitute other yarns in the same weights.

Feeling adventurous? go for it.

I have looked through the book and find it to be very challenging. The patterns are so colourful. If a challenging pattern is required I would recommend the book.

will cover the special techniques for creating and finishing garments .
Brandon has a natural instinct for color and design.
He will show you how to create a color palette to your liking.

You'll gain confidence to make a sweater design uniquely yours.
I hesitated before ordering this book and should have gone with my gut and waited for it to be remaindered (which it will be very quickly). There's about ONE style in the whole book that's just repeated with different colors from allegedly different world wide inspirations. As usual many of these deisgns can be done much more simply and effectively with Horst Schultz's patchwork method but Mr. Mably continues the Fassett mistake of only using Fair Isle techniques. Sorry but I found it a waste of money.
