26 contemporary designs from the Jo Sharp hand knitting collection.
Weekends of warmth and easy quick knits to love using new and classic yarns from the Jo Sharp collection.
Finding new ways to express what is simple, elegant and practical are key to Jo Sharp’s approach to knitwear design. The Dolman sweater in this collection is made with her New Era Merino DK Superwash or Alpaca Kid Lustre yarn, and is a perfect example of her design ethos in action. It’s a lightweight garment that is both attering in t and comfortable to wear.
Informal luxury and relaxed style are familiar hallmarks of the Jo Sharp brand, and this collection is no exception, with the inclusion of comfortable, sensual garments that are ideal for weekends out and about, or to cosy up with at home.
Jo has worked with two yarns together on the needles in a number of projects in this book, to create fabrics that will captivate the imagination, with subtle changes in texture and hue. Alternative shade options are provided alongside each design to enable knitters to interact with the palette and generate new colour combinations of their own.
Luxuriously lightweight garments also feature, with larger than usual needles used to create open fabrics that are quick to knit. Most of the projects are suitable for the beginner or average skilled knitter.
This book offers a contemporary collection of timeless designs for knitters to make items that are both worthwhile and lasting. In contrast with today’s world of fast fashion, where last season’s wardrobe is hastily cast aside, these lovingly, hand crafted pieces make a welcome change
