The new Scheepjes YARN Bookazine 14 Expression is all about creative self-expression. Expression gives limitless possibilities and allows you to reinvent yourself or break new ground. Expression is freedom!
The Expression theme is explored in YARN Bookazine 14 in four chapters: Flow, Form, Playfulness and Movement, with designs ranging from beautiful clothing items, unique home decoration and even to a quirky sea snail cuddly toy. The projects combine multiple knitting and crochet techniques and are often embellished with beadwork and embroidery for added flair. The designs are unisex and suitable for most shapes and sizes, making them inclusive. The colour palette is bright, vibrant and cheerful and the contrast with dark and soft tones gives the designs depth and style. With a wide range of yarns and fibres, including luxurious Alpaca and Merino, wastewater-produced Cotton yarns and a 100% recycled blend, these 16 crochet and knitting projects allow anyone to express their unique personality. The Expression theme is further explored in interviews with artists and bloggers who are inspired by the shape and movement of their materials. The interviews investigate drape and how expression influences acrobatics, dance and choreography. The beautiful and dynamic photography of YARN Bookazine 14 is also full of expression. For instance, many of the models are professional dancers, and the images capture the designs in true motion.
