Literary Knits

Posted on Saturday, May 18, 2013 by LisaLibrarian

There are lots of books where someone is knitting, and knitters wonder just what is being knit, but in Literary KnitsLiterary Knits, knitters are treated to thirty patterns inspired by favorite books.  I'm really taken by the hat on the cover, which is inspired by Daisy in The Great Gatsby, but I may need to knit my granddaughter the Edmund Crown/hat, inspired by The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.  It's reversible,  with a plain brim on one side that reverses to a golden crown on the other side.  

There are garments and accessories for women, men, and children.  While each is inspired by a particular character and book, Lohr has tried to honor the spirit of the character, while still producing a modern, wearable garment.

There are lots of photographs, both of full garments and of details.  Photographs of stitches have the stitches outlined to clarify exactly what you're supposed to do, which is very useful.
