The 10 patterns in this book represent a collection of some of Michael Harrigan’s all-time favorite knitting patterns, with designs ranging from simple stranded colorwork to textured patterns and eyelet lace. They are all suitable for intermediate-level knitters.

Michael’s inspiration comes from his travels around the world. He likes to spend time in historic settings, visiting local artisan markets and bazaars, and also taking in landscapes and natural features. He tries to recreate what he has seen in stitch patterns – interpreting elements of nature, landmarks, and textiles.

You’ll find triangular shawls and shawlettes, knit from the top down and the bottom up; easy-to-knit stranded colorwork cowls; a Fair Isle scarf knit in the round (and a couple of Fair Isle beanies); and a winter holiday-themed shawl that combines a few different colorwork techniques.
