...and how to knit them by local New Zealand writers, knitters, designers and plant lovers, Janet Velvin and Kate Jordan.
We are thrilled to stock this delightful book which reminds us about the threat these invasive weeds are to our special natural environments in Aotearoa New Zealand.
If you love Kate Davies, Alice Starmore or just enjoy some fun colours and textures, you'll love the character and charm of these as hand made pieces on their own. But sales of these will alert and inform that we can enjoy their beauty in knitted form without the harm of the real plants!
The book contains eight hat, beanie and beret patterns with a wonderful range of Fair Isle colourwork, ribbed and textured patterns, including:
- Agapanthus is a colourwork beret. Use subtle greens, blues and purples
- Old Man's Beard is a ribbed beanie using a sock yarn held double with a whispy strand of mohair to mimic the old man's beard
- Pampas Hat is a simple colour work zigzag with clever construction
- Fennel, a lovely lace textured beanie
Something for everyone! All knit in the round on circular needles or dpns (double pointed needles).
