The iris bishop Through The Ages Collection for 24 st punch card and electronic knitting machines - Iris Bishop writes: "as a designer, I often find inspirations when visiting museums or historical sites, observing the wonderful crafts and motifs from past generations. This collection of designs has developed from my sketches made during such visits, reflecting motifs from my favorite periods or art history.
"All of the fabric and border designs can be knitted simply in two color fairisle on a single bed machine, as there are only short "floats" on the reverse side of the fabric. However, if you wish to experiment with more colors, I have given the yarn and color details for each design. (Note: most of the yarns mentioned are no longer being manufactured.)
"I hope you will feel inspired by this collection, not only to experiment with my designs, but to develop ideas on your own favorite period of art history."

Please note that sweaters shown are suggestions on how to use the motifs. There are no sweater patterns included in this collection.
