Overview

Gorgeous knitting patterns designed by the Green Mountain Spinnery of Putney, Vermont.
In their vintage mill in rural Vermont the artisans at Green Mountain Spinnery create 99 richly colored natural-fiber yarns. In this follow-up to their popular Green Mountain Spinnery Knitting Book, they offer 36 classic and modern, stylish and fun patterns. There’s a flock of sweaters, as well as shawls, shells, and vests; an array of socks, mittens, and hats; even an afghan. Patterns range from easy to challenging; whatever your knitting skills, you’ll find projects to please. Detailed pattern charts and schematics round out this must-have volume.
The Spinnery also recounts how they became a worker-owned cooperative and takes readers on a fascinating photographic tour of their mill. Unlike most commercial yarns, Spinnery yarns are untouched by bleach or chemicals. Enhanced by gorgeous photographs throughout, this book will be an inspiration and a jumping-off point for your own creative adventures in knitting.

Meet the Author

The Green Mountain Spinnery, a worker/owner cooperative, was founded with a distinctly Vermont mission: to produce the highest quality all-natural yarns, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibers. Since then the Spinnery has grown and thrived, designing and producing all-natural yarns in alpaca, mohair, wool, and organic cotton that are known and loved by knitters and weavers across the country. Unlike most commercial mills, the yarns they produce with vintage equipment are untouched by bleach or chemicals. New members, new ideas, new product lines, and more continue to spin out from this talented, knowledgeable, devoted collective.

This is a wonderful all purpose pattern book that I use regularly. The directions are well written and easy to follow, and the garments are practical designs that fit well. I recommend this book highly.
