Knits of a Feather

Overview

The 20 hand knit designs in Knits of a Feather are inspired by the author Celeste Young's love of birds — the patterns in their feathers, the shape and colors of their beaks, and birds in flight — and her great respect for their role in nature. Creating a perfect blend of natural and artistic designs, the hats, scarves and cowls, the shawls and capelets, sweaters, and household items are reinterpreted as beautiful and one-of-a-kind knitted pieces.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
08/19/2013
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.)
