Hand-dyed Yarn Craft Projects by Debbie Tomkies

Hand-dyed Yarn Craft Projects is an ideal introduction to the dazzling new world of colour which opens up for knitters and crocheters when they discover how to dye their own yarn.

Suitable for beginners, the book has easy-to-follow instructions for creating customised colour combinations, from subtle hues to wild, exotic blends, and for using them in 12 eye-catching projects (six knitted, six crocheted) arranged progressively.

Rainbow dyeing is the main technique shown, but spraying, resist, yarn painting and overdyeing are also thoroughly covered. Readers are encouraged to experiment freely and only basic kitchen equipment is required. The knitted projects range from a Colourful Woolly Scarf to a Super-chunky Child’s Jumper, and the crocheted items include an Ultrawarm Chenille Scarf, Beaded Wrist Purse, and Sleeveless Top in Wild Thai Silk.

The book received a glowing review in the Journal of the Association of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. The reviewer commented “it really is an excellent book and if only something like it had been available when I first learnt to knit and crochet, I wouldn’t have wasted so many years discovering dyeing”.

The book is published by GMC Publications and has 160 pages lavishly illustrated with colour photographs throughout.
