One + OneWe published One + One: Wraps, Cowls, and Capelets last week and Iris Schreier was kind enough to take a few minutes to chat about the latest addition to this series.

 

How did you develop the idea for the One + One series?

I love the concept of the One + One books in general, because they give you project ideas for combining 2 unrelated skeins of yarn that could be completely mismatched.  Many people are often interested in a larger project that uses 2 skeins of yarn, and here’s the perfect opportunity to learn how to use 2 skeins together, whether in interesting slip stitch patterns, a layering look, double-knitting, or simple striping.

 

What can readers expect out of the latest installment to the series?

The latest installment includes some contemporary designs that are brand new, and will be fun for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced knitting.  The book has something for everyone, with 29 projects that cover a huge range of designs and silhouettes.

 

What influenced your designs in this book?

As always, my designs are influenced by the yarns and I love the softness and drape of the lovely luxurious Artyarns yarns used in the pieces, as well as the spectacular colors that make them pop.

 

When you’re designing what comes to mind first—the yarn or the idea for the pattern?

When I design for a new yarn, I have to basically gain an understanding of the yarn for which I am designing, and I live with it for a while–swatching, blocking, ripping, over and over, until I am happy that the design takes best advantage of the yarn.

 

What project do you have on the needles right now?

I am working on a cardigan with a cable/lace collar top-down with a new yarn, Merino Cloud, which is 80% Merino/20% Cashmere.  Also on a shawl version of the September Knitalong.

What project from this book are you planning to cast on soon?

Personally I really need to make the very, very easy and lovely Versatile Neck Hug, because it will be so much fun to knit using the soft and delicious Silk Mohair, but even better, this is the ultimate hoodie/cowl for winter, and I know I I will get great use out if it.  It can be folded down to nothing in my bag, and slipped on for protection from the cold.
