Knits About Winter celebrates the tranquil magic of a snowy landscape, the meditative joy of creating cosy knits, and the beauty of unique yarn. The compilation of 12 knitting patterns captures the magic and mystery of winter, featuring Emily's distinctive hand-dyed yarn.
Emily moved to the tiny hamlet of Mooresburg, Canada, to set up her home and dye studio in a 100-year-old store. In her remote location, winter meant layers of snow and ice, transforming the wild landscape into a sparkling blank canvas that became a valuable source of inspiration. Each pattern draws details from this wintry landscape: soft shapes in the snow, the moon in an icy midnight sky, and the delicate evergreen berries. With careful thinking of practical design details that make these knits functional for the coldest days, Knits About Winter features hats, mittens, socks, shawls, and four garments.
Also included are Emily’s charming stories of setting up her dye studio and how she developed her colourways and the designs for the book. Photographed by the author during a snowy Mooresburg winter, each image is a glimpse into the scenery and spaces essential to the book.
Knits About Winter is a book to treasure, and in the colder months will encourage you to find the beauty and colour in the darkest season, prompting the warm glow that only beautiful knits can.
