Présentation de l'éditeur
Inspired by the vivid seasons of New England, where a sweater or cap is always at hand to chase off a breeze, this collection of knitwear by young Northeast designers is full of flattering, wearable sweaters and accessories (including hats, mittens, scarves, bags, and shawls). Choose among projects from the book's three themes: Around the Town, Fall on the Farm, and Along the Coast. In addition to irresistible designs, the authors offer tips for knitting and designing with finesse, such as knitting in the round with the Magic Loop method, adjusting patterns for a better fit, and adding details such as button plackets and subtle embellishments. Patterns from the authors are complemented by four projects from New England guest designers. Lushly photographed on the New England coastline, "New England Knits" is full of timeless projects that knitters will want to make and wear, as these up-and-coming designers present their fresh take on classic knitting.
