Chapters: Details Style keywords are vintage, eclectic and quirky. This chapter uses embellishment, stitch structures and yarn combining to show how different styles can be mixed. Vintage trimmings and buttons will be added to the projects for a very unique piece. Urban Style keywords are organic, sassy and edgy. Using cables and interesting stitch fabrics, such as herringbone, ribs and chevrons this chapter looks at turning convention upside down by using interesting ways of constructing the projects. Luxury Style keywords are girly, pretty and feminine. Using color, touch, texture and lace stitches the projects in this chapter will have a definite girly theme, using luxury fibers, such as silk & wool mixes and angora with pretty ribbons.
