‘Novel Knits, British Literature in Stitches’ is a collection of 15 knitting patterns from British designer Ann Kingstone. The designs are themed around the works of three of Britain’s most famous authors, Jane Austen, JRR Tolkien, and JK Rowling. With patterns catering to a broad range of abilities, Novel Knits is one knitting book ‘to rule them all’!
Ann Kingstone is known for leading knitters into higher skill levels through her straightforward instructional style. This is apparent in the ‘techniques’ section of the book which provides step by step directions for the more unusual knitting methods used in some of the patterns.
Gorgeous photography of the projects in the book is accompanied by exquisite illustrations from professional artist and illustrator Steve Plummer. His beautiful line drawings perfectly capture the essence of the novels which inspired Ann’s designs.
Novel Knits is sure to inspire you too to take up your needles and express your literary love in stitches.
