The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves... -

by Renée Cal­la­han

Renée Cal­la­han’s lat­est pat­tern e-book is filled with the un­der­stated el­e­gance and at­ten­tion to de­tail we’ve come to ex­pect from the EastLon­donKnit de­signer.

There are two gar­ment pat­terns and four ac­ces­sories in the Rec­ol­lec­tion e-book. Fem­i­nine, vin­tage style abounds with ‘A Sweater for Lu­cille’. It’s a top-down, seam­less de­sign with chevron stripes and sim­ple lace, sized to fit up to 67in busts. ‘Josephine’, mean­while, is a wa­ter­fall cardi­gan with an un­usual con­struc­tion and slip stitch colour­work pat­tern­ing.

Gor­geous ac­ces­sories in­clude ‘Jo Shawl’, an el­e­gant com­bi­na­tion of slip stitch stripes and lace, and ‘Ma­bel’s Maze’, a cowl with a graphic, spi­ralling colour­work pat­tern.

Com­plet­ing the col­lec­tion is a rec­tan­gu­lar striped wrap worked on the bias, called ‘Hazel’s Stripes’, which is de­signed to use up small amounts of yarn from past projects. ‘Pat’s Hat’ fea­tures at­trac­tive ca­bles and twisted rib­bing, worked in a chunky wool.

£18 for the e-book. In­di­vid­ual pat­terns cost £4.20 for ac­ces­sories and £6 for gar­ments from www.rav­­terns/sources/
