Inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, the “Go Lightly” pullover is a timeless combination of comfort and chic. Casting on at the top, the collar features a folded hem that creates a unique and stylish boatneck. The little bit of eyelet detail along the raglan increases and down the side seams adds a delicate feminine touch making it perfect for visits to Sing Sing, while the relaxed fit gives the sweater an “Audrey Off-Duty” feel that will have you singing “Moon River” all day long.

I Knit New York
Print copies available from One More Row Press

The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. The Empire City. I Knit New York contains ten knitting patterns inspired by the history and geography of the Capital of the World. We asked five of our favorite New Yorkers to design patterns and share their favorite New York secrets from subway to skyscraper.

Want to know where to find the New York that the locals know and love? IKNY shares shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, museums, and more. And if you can’t make it to the City, we include lists of our favorite books, movies, TV shows, and songs, so you can bring NYC home.

Designers include Brittney Bailey (b.woolens/Purl Soho), Kathleen Dames (kathleen dames knitwear design), Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops), Xandy Peters (creator of Fox Paws and other stacked stitches), and Lars Rains (Modern Lopi), plus an essay from Kay Gardiner (the Northern half of Mason-Dixon Knitting), a #buttonhunt in the Garment District with Kathleen Dames (host of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast), and a multiborough yarn crawl with Lisa Chamoff (founder of Indie Untangled).

Yarns for all patterns provided by Backyard Fiberworks. Alice O’Reilly, the dyer behind Backyard Fiberworks, contributes an essay on color theory plus a guide to the various yarns used in I Knit New York.
