Travel-inspired Knits

Travel-inspired Knits: 10 Original Patterns for Hand Knit Accessories by Michael Harrigan

The 10 original patterns in this collection are some of Michael Harrigan’s all-time favorite knitting 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.

Ultraviolet Knits

Ultraviolet Knits is inspired by the night’s sky, some from the view from Earth, such as star-gazing from a porch swing, while others pay homage to astronomy. Each of the 12 accessory patterns works well with bold, speckled, and vibrant yarns as well as semi-solid and neutrals, making the designs well suited for using those treasured skeins in your yarn collection. These accessory designs are excellent for travel knitting given their size. For festival-goers or everyday use, these finished objects are ones you’ll want to wear again and again.

These Islands

These Islands explores two sources for wool in Ireland which embrace the slow revolution with ethically-treated sheep, fair-trade wool, and local milling. A step away from the mass-produced acrylics and imported wool blends from other continents to focus once again on knitting with local wool. It is time to allow conscientious small-batch artisan producers to guide us to the very best of what these islands have to offer. If we’re so focused on having our eggs be fair-trade and local, why not our knitting wool? These Islands includes eight never before published patterns for hats, a cowl, shawls, fingerless gloves, and boot cuffs using locally-processed wool made from the fleece of Irish, Scottish, or British sheep with names.
