Guest: Kathy talks about some exciting new pattern books for Spring.

Westknits 4: Made for Movement by Stephen West. Once again Stephen is featuring his signature architectural shaping and stitch detail to create 10 gorgeous designs.

      

Kathy really likes the Barndom Shawl, featured on the cover, the Itaca shawl as well as the Shrowl – which is a free pattern

Classic Elite Yarns has paired up with Stephanie, the owner of Unwind in L.A., to create 2 collections with 5 patterns each. Both collections are modern and fresh, and still very recognizable as Classic Elite designs.

Handmade Los Angeles I : a collection of more wintry garments

Kathy loves the shawl knit on the bias in 3 colors of Chalet, and the beautiful scoop neck sweater that would be a perfect wardrobe staple.

Handmade Los Angeles II : designs with more of a summer vibe


Kathy’s favorite is the Poncho knit in Silky Alpaca Lace in cream with the multicolor fringe.
