I am honored to be working with the spectacular
along with other talented knitters and designers
on a fantastic new KAL.
As a promotion for the 10th anniversary and new paperback edition of
Knitwear Design Workshop: A Comprehensive Guide to Handknits
we will be knitting the iconic Pea Coat from the cover.
I knit this sample for Shirley more than 10 years ago!
It is a timeless garment worked from an extremely well written pattern, with complex charts
and techniques that will challenge a knitter of any level. I will be facilitating this KAL with another amazing designer - Mari Tobita.
The book, nicknamed "KDW", has been an invaluable reference for me, as it is for anyone wanting to design hand knit clothing from scratch, or wanting to be empowered to make changes on commercial knitting pattern instructions.
