“Knit, Swirl!” by Sandra McIver is a remarkable new book that contains 18 patterns for these unique swirl jackets. The basic concept is a series of concentric rings that create the collar, lapels, front and lower back, with one seam that runs from cuff to cuff to create the arms, front bodice and back neck.
Sound complicated? It’s not! Most of the designs require only basic knitting skills ... the first couple of chapters are chock full of tips and tricks that will ease your journey. Four different Swirl silhouettes are explained – pick the style that best suits your own body’s silhouette.
Can’t decide which pattern or colors? No problem! Our friends at Mountain Colors Yarns have put together a kit for the “Coat of Many Colors” featured on the cover of the book, in three yummy colorways: Poppy, Sunflower or Blue Flax. Each kit uses nine subtly different Mountain Colors hand painted yarns to create this wonderful coat.
Here is the best part ... we're making it easy for you with a special offer! When you purchase the Coat of Many Colors Kit, we will include the book FREE! Bonus: shipping is FREE (did I say free too many times?). You get the idea ... buy the kit, get the book and shipping FREE ... while supplies last! Click Here for Details!
