Fashions come and go, but some designs are truly timeless. Country Weekend Knits features a collection of twenty-five classic patterns that showcase the rich heritage of traditional British knitwear. Many of these beautiful knitting patterns are based on original designs dating as far back as the eighteenth century, which have been passed down through generations of knitters, and reinterpreted here in contemporary colors and yarns. The rich textures, the soft natural colors, and intricate patterns of these appealing knits instantly conjure up a host of comforting images while evoking the serene charm of the English countryside.
Beautifully photographed, the designs and patterns are interspersed with evocative, scene-setting photographs of the coastline and the countryside. With complete step-by-step instructions for every sweater.
