This Valentine's Day we have a crush on the new book, A
, and here at Knitting Daily
we're excited to offer a
sweepstakes giveaway of one complimentary copy to a lucky reader!
by knitwear designer Jennie Atkinson, known for her
designs for Rowan and her previous book, Romantic Style,
intricate and exquisite knitting designs inspired
by women's clothing, lingerie, and accessories of the past. Atkinson's
attention to detail in each piece makes for a gorgeous collection of unique,
precious garments that reflect today's vogue for vintage-inspired fashion.
Techniques explored in the book include pin tucks, picot trims, crochet edges,
lace beading, and embroidery that convey modest and flirty classic, fitted
patterns using a range of lace, superfine, fine, and lightweight yarns.
Projects range from small accessories to full-size garments and suit beginner
and seasoned knitters alike. Plus, this knitting resource has great advice on
yarn substitutions as well as tips on how the patterns can be customized to fit
