Rustic Modern Knits

$12.48 50% off
Retail: $24.95

Rustic, organic, urban, natural–a collection of unique knitted accessories.
Enjoy a clean, sophisticated take on knitting with Rustic Modern Knits. Yumiko Alexander's collection of 23 knitted accessories takes its inspiration from the natural world. Her knitted headbands, shawls, wraps, mitts, hats, and more all reflect her interest in nature's beauty–verdant leaves, flowers, shells, waves, and colors inspired by sunsets and stone. Versatile knitting designs allow a shawl to become a scarf or a cape by making just a few slight adjustments. Stitch patterns and easy techniques have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the knitted fabric.
Yumiko's knitting designs are fashion-forward but never trendy--they exist in a sphere all their own. Despite or perhaps because of their organic and rustic feel, they are very much at home in a cosmopolitan setting, and should appeal to knitters looking for beautiful and unique knitting projects to wear.

4 out of 5 stars

Really pretty accessory patterns in a pretty cohesive feminine bohemian style and I want to knit about 4 things, which is worth it for the price. I wish the required yardages were listed, or substitutions for the yarns used, rather than just the number of skeins and specific yarns, as a couple of patterns seem to be written almost specifically for those yarns. Also if an item comes in different sizes only one size is shown in photos. there is also errata, which has to be checked on the designer's blog/website.
