Part III lets you take your knitting to the next level by showing you how to create more complex effects. Here you can find out how to knit stripes and cables, do lacework, and, with the discussions on Fair Isle and intarsia techniques, work more complex color patterns that use more than one color per row.
The cool thing about more advanced knitting techniques is that they use the basic techniques (those covered in Part II) with a little twist. Textured stripes? You simply vary knit and purl rows. Colored stripes? Just incorporate different colored yarns. Cables? Knit the stitches out of order. Lace? Make creative use of increases and decreases. Fair Isle and intarsia? Knit with two colors in the same row and weave in ends. Piece of cake!
