Wool, book one

Yay, it is here! Melissa and I are both in love with Quince and Co. yarns (and Pam and Carrie!) so we were beyond thrilled when we began talking about a series of e-books with Quince. This meant the opportunity to work with amazingly wonderful and thoughtful yarns and get to have our pieces styled and photographed by Pam and Carrie! And these ladies are so much fun, so kind and so easy to work with, it was an absolute dream.

I could not be more thrilled with the way that the first e-booklet in our Wool series turned out, the layout, photography, styling, is all just so wonderful.

Wool, book one has 5 knitting pattern: Three sweaters, a cowl and a beret. It also includes an introduction from Melissa and I, our inspiration for each piece,  tips to make working these garments even easier, and words about Wool from Pam.

Here are the knits!

From Melissa

Avery: a reversible cowl in Osprey, worked in the round in a stunning knit and purl pattern, that maybe worn wrapped once or twice around your neck

Agnes: a pullover in Puffin, worked from the top down in stockinette stitch with ribbed trims and pockets (yay!) with their linings knit in a contrasting color. A very simple, very quick to knit and super cozy and fun to wear sweater.

Lena: a beret in Tern knit in a wonderful leafy lace pattern. I love this stitch pattern it has the look of lace without being too open which means this beautiful beret can keep you warm on the coldest days.

And from me-

Anastasia: a top down cardigan in Osprey, worked in one piece with waist shaping. Wonderfully soft and cozy, Osprey knits up so quickly and shows off stitch patterns amazingly well.

Kara: an open cardigan in Chickadee worked in a very simple to work all over lace pattern. This cardigan is worked from the bottom of the back up, with stitches cast on for the sleeves, then bound off for the back neck, and each side is worked down and stitches are bound off for the sleeves, the remaining stitches are worked down to the bottom of the fronts.  The cast on and bound off stitches are in multiples of the lace stitch pattern, so there is no shaping within the lace, which makes this a fun but easy knit.

Do you like it?  Wool, book one is available for purchase as a pdf  from Quince here: http://quinceandco.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=16&products_id=90

I really hope that you enjoy this project as much as we enjoyed working on it.

See you soon,

Cecily
