Overview


Enjoy the 20 most popular knitting patterns and expert advice from the first five years of Knitscene magazine in The Best of Knitscene.

The knitwear designs of this one-of-kind collection have been knitted thousands of times by hundreds of knitters around the world. For the first time ever Lisa Shroyer, editor of Knitscene magazine, has compiled the most beloved, fashionable creations into a single all-star collection. Among the patterns included are Heather Lodinsky's Central Park Hoodie, Connie Chang Chinchio's Geodesic Cardigan, Katie Himmelberg's Phiaro Scarf, and other favorite designs. And these patterns are even better than ever, they've been updated with corrections, additional sizes, technique tutorials, and more. Some of these must-have knit patterns are now out of print, so Lisa is offering you a second chance to add them into your knitting pattern collection.

Plus, you'll get articles and profiles on some of the most popular designers including Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Star Athena, and Kate Gagnon Osborn.

With The Best of Knitscene you'll fall in love all over again with your favorite patterns from Knitscene.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics

"To answer the burning question – yes, the Central Park Hoodie is in this book (sized from 32-60"). Plus there’s a lot of other good stuff. I’m not a regular reader of Knitscene so a lot of the patterns in here I’d never seen. All of the patterns have been published in the magazine, but if you don’t have them all this is a great eclectic collection of patterns. There are extras too, articles – I really enjoyed the article about how Knitscene uses sweater trends and how to wear them. There’s a sprinkling of profiles of Knitscene’s favorite designers and I never get tired of reading about designers’ inspirations. I found at least 8 things I would make in this book – Mathew Gagny’s Heleborus Yoke cardigan and Cecily Glowik MacDonald’s Michaelmas Mitts top my list." - Jillian Moreno, Knitty.com

"This book is a fun one. Twenty classic, stylish patterns for sweaters, vests, shawls, hats and socks. I want to make every single one of them, from the Oscilloscope Shawl to the Equinox Raglan to the Central Park Hoodie." – Austin-American Statesman

"Written by the author of 'Knitting Plus' and the editor of 'Knitscene', this book features the magazine's 20 most popular styles." – Knitting at Large

"I predict that by then end of next year I'll have knitted five projects from The Best of Knitscene. That's a pretty high endorsement!" – KnittingDaily.com
