JEWELS is the third book in our European Nature book series which we created to share our passion for natural, local, breed-specific, European yarns, beautiful knitwear designs and the stories of the amazing makers who enable and inspire us to create magic with our own hands.
JEWELS includes 12 modern knitwear designs for the colder seasons on this planet. From luscious colourwork yokes to drapey everyday sweaters, from a shawl as cosy as a hug to mittens designed to keep your hands toasty warm, all the pieces in this book are designed to be both enjoyable to knit and wearable for years to come. JEWELS wouldn’t be a Making Stories publication though without the stories that inspire us to do our work: We’ve included profiles for every single maker involved in this book, be it designer or yarn company, as well as two fantastic articles on yarn (by Katie Green) and colour substitution (by Dianna Walla) and a conversation on colour between Melody Hoffmann, a favourite designer, and yarn dyer Paula Goosen of Moel View Yarn.
Details on all JEWELS designs can be found here.
