This Thing of Pa­per

The Knitter - - Wharfedale - by Karie Wester­mann

A life­long fascination with books in­spired Karie Wester­mann to create this col­lec­tion of 11 pat­terns, ex­plor­ing the con­nec­tions be­tween books and knit­ting.

Karie is known for her beau­ti­ful shawls, and here she brings us four lovely de­signs, such as ‘Psalter’, which pairs a two-colour slip stitch pat­tern with an in­tri­cate lace edg­ing, and ‘Wood­cut’, an ethe­real hap shawl.

Flat­ter­ing gar­ments in­clude ‘Vel­lum’, with its colour­work yoke; ‘Margina­lia’, a top-down raglan sweater with dec­o­ra­tive slip-stitch de­tails; and ‘In­cunab­ula’, which has tex­tured front bands and a neat fit. They all have bust mea­sure­ments of 28in-54in.

Accessories in­clude a hat and finger­less mitts with an el­e­gant Fair Isle pat­tern, a tex­tured cowl, and cosy colour­work mit­tens.

The pat­terns are ac­com­pa­nied by thought­pro­vok­ing and per­sonal es­says, at­mo­spheric pho­to­graphs, and prac­ti­cal knit­ting ad­vice. £18.99 from www.kariebook­ish.net
