Every hand-knit has a story behind it. These have whole books.
This collection of unique hand knit garments and accessories were inspired by some of Literature’s greatest stories. Based on Nathaniel Hawthorn’s The Scarlet Letter, the Scarlet Letterman’s Jacket will keep you warm while telling the world you make your own rules. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes inspired the Shersocks, a fun color-work pattern for those that believe even their toes deserve to look like geniuses. J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan was the inspiration for a quick and quirky necklace that never has to grow up. Based on HP Lovecraft’s Cthulu, the rich cabling on the HP LoveVest will feed your darker side. Finally, the Amelia Stole, based on Amelia Sedley from William Thackeray’s iconic Vanity Fair will make you feel like a high society lady, even if you are on a peasant’s budget.

Megan-Anne and I have been talking about Kniterary for a long time, and it feels awesome to release this first volume of patterns. We’re more than a little obsessed with books in our family, so it’s no surprise that our first pattern compendium would be based on the classic literature we grew up with. All of the patterns were designed for the modern lady, who could wear these garments at work with a pencil skirt or with jeans for a casual night out.
Knit night never looked so fabulous.
