I was honored to work with the spectacular
along with other talented knitters and designers
on this fantastic KAL as a promotion for the 10th anniversary and new paperback edition of
Knitwear Design Workshop: A Comprehensive Guide to Handknits
We all knit the iconic Pea Coat from the cover, each with our own flair.
I knit the original 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.
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.
