Overview

Legendary designer Kaffe Fassett returns to readers with his first knitting book in a decade!

Known by millions of knitters who cherish his intricate designs, unique color palette, and bold graphic aesthetic, Kaffe Fassett reinvents 24 of his most beloved patterns in this long-awaited book. Gorgeously shot in England’s eclectic, historic Charleston House, the country meeting place of the Bloomsbury Group artists and writers like Vanessa Bell (sister of Virginia Woolf), Duncan Grant, Dora Carrington, and E. M. Forester.

Worked in rich, subtle palettes and soft new Rowan yarns, Kaffe’s updated classics appear perfectly at home among Charleston’s huge collection of paintings and lithographs and the soft, warm tones of Bell’s studio.

For the legion of Kaffe fans or for any passionate knitters looking to add warmth, color, and variety to their clothes, accessories, and home décor, Kaffe Knits Again is the must-have knitting book of the year to own. From a fresco-palette shawl that pays homage to the lovely colors of Charleston House or a Moody Blues cushion adapted from one of Kaffe’s Scottish Tweed sweaters, to a unisex V-neck that mimics the natural hues of a stony beach and a geometric-patterned Gridlock throw inspired by an ancient carpet, all of the 24 projects in Kaffe Knits Again reflect the color-conscious, fearless pattern-work that has elevated Kaffe’s knits to the status of art.

While Kaffe’s designs are striking, they need not intimidate beginning knitters: Kaffe has included several that use only two colors per row and large-sized needles. Plus, helpful black-and-white line drawings and easy-to-follow directions will guide even novice knitters along Kaffe’s knitting dreamscape.
