Cecelia Campochairo started with a simple idea--what happens when you take a simple knit/purl sequence of just a few stitches and repeat it? She looked at a number of simple sequences and exhaustively explored what happens to them in different situations, taking them through a variety of permutations, with different numbers of stitches, with both flat and circular knitting, and with increases and decreases. The resulting fabrics are textured and mostly reversible, so they make wonderful scarves and blankets, but also the starting point for unique sweaters. For each sequence, there is a large chart and a photograph of the knitted sample (both front and back for flat fabrics.) The charts and sample photos are in black and white for maximum contrast, but there is a section on the effect of color and working with variegated yarns that is in color.
