"Couture knitting translates the principles of haute couture into an approach to hand-knitting that effects a fundamental rethinking of the traditional technical and design vocabularies of the... More > hand-knitter ... The result is a different and unique approach to hand-knitting that is reflected in the designs themselves, in the techniques used to execute the designs, and in the way the characteristics of the knitted fabric come to play as critical a role in the conception of the garment as either the details of its design or the techniques used to execute this design." Thus, Catherine Lowe introduces her renowned concepts of couture knitting to her readers. Now available in this new format, "The Ravell'd Sleeve" revises and brings together in a single volume the four issues of Lowe's acclaimed journal in which she explores the practice and techniques of couture knitting.< Less

This book takes the 27-page priming section from the previous volume and expands it into a full second book. At its core are the 66 priming categories along with notes about their individual... More > properties. The majority are in print here for the first time. There’s also a full description of why various priming techniques work, extensive advice on their use (including how to reveal a difficult spectator’s unspoken, discarded options – in the order she has them), a section of full effects, and an extensive appendix of extra data. Also described is the powerful and flexible Pragmagram technique, used to create revolutionary effects such as the Naked Book Test. When combined with priming, this allows you to deliver seemingly genuine precognitive insights into the spectator’s thoughts before she has them.
