Lucinda Guy is an extremely successful children's knitwear designer and she has written many successful books on the subject. Here she presents 50 gorgeous motif designs based on five popular themes including animals and birds, and flowers, fruit and vegetables. Beginning with illustrated ideas for positioning motifs and suitable colour combinations, the book is then divided into five themed sections, each section containing eight individual designs. Each design includes charts, knitted swatches and alternative colourways. Practical information on intarsia and embroidery work is placed at the back of the book.
Lucinda Guy is a knitwear and textile designer and author of four books of handknitting for kids, all originally published by Rowan in the UK. She started her knitwear career designing swatches for women and menswear and successfully sold designs to Edina Ronay, Laura Ashley, Marks and Spencer, and Rowan Yarns.
