Knitwear designers Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig are two friends living on opposite ends of the United States. They have come together to produce Coastal Knits, a compilation of ten fresh designs inspired by Alana's California and Hannah's Maine coastlines. This delicious compilation is full of sample swatches, inspirational design cues, and behind the scenes information and photographs. With a range of cowls, shawls, headwear, cardigans, and sweaters, you will find more lovely items to make in one easy compilation!
Each design captures the essence of their favorite local destinations, and is accompanied by photographs and essays on the location's special meaning to the designer. It is a personal, inspiration-based collection of sweaters and accessories that knitters of all levels will appreciate.
The following patterns are included in the book. Please click on any link to view a gift kit which includes this book with enough yarn to complete that pattern! (Coming this week!) After all, pattern books should come with yarn!
