ABOUT NEW ENGLAND KNITS
Cherish the gorgeous and timeless appeal of America’s northeast with this irresistible collection. Inspired by autumn, winter, and spring in New England (where the savvy knitter is never far from a sweater between September and March), New England Knits delivers 25 gorgeous patterns with classic wearability and contemporary style.
New England-based designers Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre created each piece to distinctly showcase the weather, colors, and culture of the region they so love. Projects by four guest designers from New England round out the collection.
Lushly photographed, New England Knits is divided into three classic themes: Around the Town, Fall on the Farm, and Along the Coast. Within each section you’ll find beautiful multiseasonal clothes and accessories, such as cardigans for layering or scarves to warm your neck when the temperatures dip. You’ll also fall in love with soft sweaters, durable bags, cozy mittens, and more! With New England Knits, you’ll have everything you need for a perfect new England-inspired wardrobe.
