Read full description of the books:
Four mini workshops with 24 patterns and spectacular photography in this compilation help knitters think creatively, find inspiration in their surroundings, and shape those elements into garment design. Stunning patterns are arranged by season, reflecting the colors and beauty of nature that inspire feminine designs. From an amber-beaded cardigan that captures the feeling of hay fields drying in the sun to a long, belted coat with a spray of coral roses inspired by flowers in local markets to an intarsia jacket that evokes memories of a fall hike in a forest, each pattern is rich with color, detailing, and romantic knitting style. The design workshops throughout this guidebook challenge knitters to find inspiration in their surroundings, build color palettes, swatch creatively through knitting and sketching, and finesse their style and fit.

Read information about the authorMichele Rose Orne, Partner and Knit Design Director for Swans Island, has been designing hand knits for over 25 years. She brings a rich combination of passion and experience to Swans Island’s line of all-natural, hand-dyed yarns and timeless patterns that are inspired by classic favorites and daily life along the coast of Maine.
After graduating from Yale University in 1985 with majors in fine arts and economics, Michele spent several years in the garment industry in New York designing knitwear for many major retailers. She has also worked as a freelance designer in the handknitting industry since then, contributing hundreds of patterns to major national magazines, knitting books and yarn companies.
Michele moved to Maine in 1990 where she continued her design career until the birth of her fourth child in 2002. After taking a few years off to focus on being a mom, she published Inspired to Knit (2008), which was her reentrance into the world of hand knitting design. Michele lives in Camden, Maine, with her husband Matt, four children, and various other domestic creatures.
