Taking inspiration from our feathered friends, this collection of knitting patterns designed by needlework teacher Young runs the gamut from hats and wraps to sweaters and household pieces. Patterns range from more abstract takes on the feathered theme, with pieces like the geometric Cardinal Cap or the speckled Robin’s Egg Wristlets, to more literal renditions, such as the pictorial Birds on a Wire Cowl and the Feathered Shoulder Warmer, a whimsical accessory composed of oversized knitted feathers. Lace and cablework make occasional appearances, but the collection forefronts colorwork designs as a way to relish patterns from the natural world. Although the difficulty key indicates how challenging each project is, most patterns fall in the intermediate range. Bird lovers and fans of colorwork will flock to this sweet collection of fun knits. (Oct.)
