Green Mountain Spinnery Knitting Book: Classic and Contemporary Patternsby Margaret Kle Wilson
Synopses & Reviews
Gorgeous Knitting patterns designed for the colorful natural-fiber yarns produced by the Green Mountain Spinnery of Putney, Vermont. The Green Mountain Spinnery was founded twenty years ago with a distinctly Vermont mission: to produce the highest quality natural-fiber yarns, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibers. Since then the collective has grown and thrived, designing and producing richly colored yarns in alpaca, mohair, wool, and organic cotton that are known and loved by knitters and weavers across the country. The yarns are produced in their mill in rural Vermont with vintage equipment and are available in a spectacular array of 75 natural and dyed colors. Now in this beautiful, inviting book, the Green Mountain Spinnery has collected for the first time more than 30 of their contemporary and classic patterns. Beautiful full-color photographs, pattern charts, and schematics accompany detailed knitting instructions for appealing sweaters, vests, cardigans, children's sweaters, and accessories, including hats, scarves, socks, and mittens.
