This Thing of Paper
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
