Neons & Neutrals – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a sequel to Aimée's first book, the best-selling Worsted. This collection, if possible, is even better and includes 16 patterns from 16 talented designers. It is an eclectic collection of patterns that invites crafters to combine yarn in new and unexpected ways across brands and bases. The designs showcase modern knitting, using various techniques and unique and unexpected colour combinations. Most of the patterns are photographed in two different samples – worked in different colours and yarns, giving you inspiration for your own versions.

The collection celebrates solidarity and cooperation: to showcase the many talented people in the knitting community. Aimée has put together a collection of not only patterns from designers around the world but yarns from a variety of producers and dyers. They all work beautifully together, and different sizes and price points have also been considered.

Aimée Gille was born and raised in Kansas, the United States, and later moved to France, where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L'Oisive Thé, an excellent knitting café, and later La Bien Aimée, a yarn company whose gorgeous hand-dyed yarns are sold worldwide.

The book features designs by the following designers: Inese Sang, Maaike van Geijn, Karen Cronje, Anna Husemann, Layla Yang, Caitlyn Turowski, Cecelia Campochiaro, Valerie Ng, Maysa Tomikawa, Florence Spurling, Lotta H Löthgren, Brandi Cheyenne Harper, Marie Régnier, Susan Chin, Brienne Moody and Julia Wilkens.

The book includes 16 knitting patterns (four sweaters, four cardigans, four shawls, two hats, one vest and one cowl). Sweaters and cardigans are graded into various sizes, reaching from size 1 (30" / 75 cm bust circumference) to at least size 8 (or 60" / 152 cm bust circumference).
