Knitwear Workshop Designs: Duets & Inspirations

Official Online Book Launch

In her second book devoted to the art of hand knitwear design, Shirley Paden gives us a pattern book for knitters of all skill levels. Showcasing designs by 16 budding and experienced designers along with the author herself, Knitwear Design Workshop: Duets and Inspirations, continues the creative journey started in the first book. Each designer “sings” a duet with Shirley, selecting one of her iconic patterns as their personal inspiration and taking it in a different direction to create a new and unique garment.

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Its loveliness increases. It will never pass into nothingness, but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.”

—John Keats (1795-1821)
