An update on a family heirloom, this shimmery cardigan is modeled after one that designer Cirilia Rose inherited from her great grandmother, Concetta. Concetta knit hers with thousands of sequins, dazzling the eye from its round collar down to its three-quarter-length sleeves. Cirilia uses a lush and light yarn to make this updated version that’s just a bit easier on the sparkle, making it an everyday treat.
About the book…..
When most people think of their grandmother’s knitting, they might not immediately see the connection to a modern knitter’s life. But in My Grandmother’s Knitting, Larissa Brown shows us that nothing could be further from the truth.
Many of today’s hippest and most popular knitters found their passion for knitting under the tutelage of their grandmother or another revered family member, and in this book, they share stories and patterns inspired by their memories and their gratitude.
This book is available for preorder on amazon and will be released September 1, 2011.
