Making Marls is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multistrand handknitting and the creation of marled fabrics. The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and colored fabrics. As with her first book, Sequence Knitting, Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries.

In Making Marls, the word “sequence” is used to describe the order of marl stripes, rather than the stitch sequences in Sequence Knitting. There are common-strand sequences, bridging sequences, sequences from gradient sets, complex sequences, and even improvisational sequences. The book can be approached on three levels:

  • A reference book about multistrand handknitting
  • A pattern book with over thirty “recipes”
  • A source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colours


The book you hold is simultaneously a reference volume and a wellspring of creative inspiration. Cecelia Campochiaro is an inventive designer, a diligent researcher, and a master organizer.

My introduction to Cecelia was through her first book, Sequence Knitting. We knitters were startled to discover the unending variety for texture patterns using only simple repeats of knit and purl.

Well, she’s done it again!

Making Marls literally runs the gamut of color-blending possibilities. The result is a diverse and captivating experience that allows knitters to produce stunning works.
