Coastal Knits by Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig is a beautiful collection of ten sweater and accessory patterns created by two friends on opposite coasts.
Alana and Hannah each have their own point of veiw, but share a talent for creating flattering designs with the kinds of details that make them fun to knit and wear.
The projects in the book are all beautifully photograhphed in locations around Alana's west coast or Hannah's east coast homes. Sweet illustrations and essays on the individual locations compliment the photographs to make the book a pleasure to page through.
With a range of techniques and difficulty levels there is something for everyone in this book. I'm particularly taken with the lovely way the decreases on the crown of the Rustling Leaves Beret come together to create an orderly swirl of leaves.
Hannah and Alana have offered to send a free copy of Coastal Knits to one of my readers. Simply comment on this post by Monday, December 5th and I will draw one winner at random.
