Knitting provides a great way of injecting style and colour into interiors while also adding warmth and comfort, making it the perfect method of decorating a nursery. Here Melanie Porter presents a collection of hand-knitted nursery room projects, as well as baby clothes and toys. The book is divided into two sections: For Baby’s Room, which is inspired by vintage colour palettes, and Toddler’s Room, which includes more contemporary and vibrant designs. Discover patterns to cover baskets, hooks and coat hangers, as well as blankets for both mother and baby, rugs and cushions. Make gorgeous decorations, from a mobile and hanging pompoms to letter wall art and embroidery hoop pinboards. Classic baby knits are included, too – booties, hats and mittens – and toys, such as knitted blocks and even a rocking sheep! The comprehensive techniques section covers the basics for beginners and acts as a helpful reference guide for experienced knitters.

Notă biografică

Melanie Porter is a graduate of Central Saint Martin’s College in London. She spent 10 years working as a knitwear designer for a number of international fashion brands before turning her expertise to furniture in 2008. She creates one-off contemporary designs from antiques sourced at auctions and markets – each project is painstakingly stripped back to the frame, before being restored and/or reupholstered using traditional techniques, and then covered with a series of hand-knitted panels. Melanie's ability to create exquisite, textured fabrics which are individually knitted and felted for every project has drawn attention from clients and press all over the world. Her work is now sold at prestigious department store Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and lifestyle boutique Wolf & Badger in London. She is the author of Hand-Knit Your Home, also published by CICO Books. Her first child was born in July 2013. The author is based in central London.
