Laine is a high-quality Nordic knit & lifestyle magazine for knit folks. Laine cherishes natural fibres, slow living, local craftsmanship and beautiful, simple things in life. Their intention is to inspire you to gather and share, to be part of a community of like-minded knitters, makers and thinkers from near and far. Knitting is more than just knit, knit, purl. It is a feeling.
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, Pom Pom also celebrates the joy of making, without taking themselves too seriously!
Woolens includes 11 new patterns by designer Jared Flood, founder and creative director of Brooklyn Tweed. From hats and cowls to scarves, shawls, and wraps, projects suitable for adventurous beginners and seasoned knitters abound.
Several patterns in the book offer multiple design pathways that allow the maker to customize the garment according to personal taste. Many designs are unisex. A thorough techniques section shepherds knitters through the patterns and serves as a valuable standalone reference resource.
Flood’s lavish photography kindles the imagination and inspires creative knitters to original interpretations. Woolens makes a wonderful gift for a knitting friend and is a worthy addition to any knitting library.
