Miriam Felton: Twist & Knit

Posted by 66433615 on

Miriam Felton's brilliant new book Twist & Knit is being published by Cooperative Press this spring. You can preorder it on her website here (for the regular version) and here (for the limited edition, hand-bound version). Every knitter knows the frustration of running out of yarn. This nagging fear is compounded when the yarn is one-of-a-kind or hand-dyed and simply heartbreaking when you've spent hours spinning the yarn yourself. This book offers twelve patterns specifically designed to get the most out of your unique yarn. All of the patterns have small repeats, very flexible gauge, or carefully selected construction to allow you to use every yard of yarn without sacrificing wearability.
  • 12 patterns
  • 27 pages of supporting material, including technique tutorials.
  • Highly versatile patterns for a variety of yarn weights, with instructions given for modifications in width and length.
  • Fully charted patterns
The amazing patterns in this book are Cleite Shawl, Colonnade Scarf, Comfy Shawl, Dropleaf Wrap, Gable Mitts, Lune Shawl, Motte Shawl, Porifera Socks, Transverse Scarf, Tudor Stole, Vinca Shawl and Windward Cowl. If you want to store the patterns in your Ravelry library, you can purchase the printed book plus the digital add-on for only $2 more. The digital add-on gives you the full patterns for all of the designs except Cleite (which is under contract for digital distribution), with all the tutorials you will need as a supplement PDF. The digital add-on also has the text translations of the charts, which the printed book does not have. (Choose 'print PLUS digital' from the dropdown at the bottom of the page). If you want the digital files without purchasing the printed book, you can buy them individually or in Collections #1, #2 and #3 through Ravelry. All digital versions are available immediately. Love lace but need help? Miriam is teaching two classes with Stitch Cooperative in Columbus, OH this June. "Fixing Lace Mistakes" and "Triangular Shawls" are enrolling now.
