Perhaps you've already heard of this beautiful gem called Coastal Knits?
This gorgeous self published pattern book from the minds of Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig has been making it's way around the interwebs and I'm so excited to be the next stop on their blog tour! I remember first seeing the pattern book preview on Hannah's blog and found I couldn't email her fast enough to get a copy. The sweater that got me like so many others was the Rocky Coast Cardigan.
Coastal Knits is a compliation of 10 gorgeous patterns that are sure to please every knitter. Alana and Hannah have beautiful taste and I love how their patterns compliment each other.
I especially love the inspiration stories behind each pattern they created. Even if you've never been to Maine or California the descriptions of their favorite locations makes you feel like you've stranding there with them amongst the eucylptus trees or walking along the The West End.
The yarns they used were carefully selected from their respective coasts including some of my favorites – Quince & Co. and Fibre Co and ones that I hope to try from Pigeonroof Studio and Alpenglow. As for the patterns? By the looks of Ravelry and the number of sweaters already made they are well tested and knitter approved!
I'm so excited to be able to give you another way to win yourself a copy of this fabulous pattern book! Leave me a comment by midnight EST tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 22)!
For other stops on the blog tour visit these fabulous blogs! And most importantly – order yourself a copy for your knit library!
