I am delighted to announce that Novel Knits is now out! The ebook is available via Ravelry, with an automatic discount for those of you who have previously bought PDF verisons of any of the patterns in the book. Then tomorrow I release the print version with a special launch party at I Knit in London. The party will kick off at 1pm, and French TV channel, Canal+ will be there to film it! Please come along - I would love to see you there!
Novel Knits is fundamentally a pattern collection, featuring 15 of my designs themed on the work of 3 authors; Jane Austen, JRR Tolkien, and JK Rowling. I’ve worked to give the book some of the aesthetic of a novel itself, so it is a neat little A5 format (very convenient for popping into your project bag/handbag!), and it features beautiful hand-drawn illustrations by professional artist and illustrator, Steve Plummer. The book is divided into 3 ‘parts’, one for each author featured, and also includes a foreword, techniques section, abbreviations and symbols list, and yarn and sources inventories.
Early next week I will add a page to the website where you can order a copy. The UK price is £15 + P&P.
So, I’m sure you all want a sneak peek at the book? Here’s the front cover:
And here’s the back cover (please note that the ISBN shown is for the ebook — the printed book ISBN is 978–0-9569405–0-6 ) :
