Coastal Knits, so lovely

I think that by now you may all have already heard about (seen it? bought it?) the wonderful self published book by Hannah Fettig and Alana Dakos, Coastal Knits. If you do not yet know about Coastal Knits, I am thrilled to be the one to introduce it to you! I am sure that you will love it as much as I do.

Coastal Knit features 5 sweater patterns and 5 accessory patterns, half designed by Hannah and half by Alana. However, this is not only a beautiful collection of patterns, Coastal Knits also, in words and photos, takes you to beautiful places on the East and West Coasts of the US. You see, Hannah lives in Maine and Alana lives in California and this book definitely offers wonderful knits for those on each coast, and everywhere in between.

It was tough to narrow them down, but here are two of my favorite pieces in Coastal Knits:

The Wildflower Cardigan designed by Alana is a wonderful easy to wear shape, with beautiful decorative edging and POCKETS!

And Rocky Coast by Hannah– a top down, open, cabled cardi, what could be more perfect!?!

To see all of the beautiful designs in Coast Knits, click on this link:

The patterns in Coastal Knits are wonderfully written, the photos are incredible, and the layout and graphics are perfect. I am very much impressed with and inspired by Coastal Knits and I think that you will be too.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you get your copy of Coastal Knits soon;)




  1. I love Coastal Knits too. I purchased it for the pattern Rocky Coast, but just finished knitting the rustling leaves beret. 🙂
