I’m a long time fan of Alana’s (aka Never Not Knitting) design aesthetic- remember this, this and this? oh, and how about her amazing collection with Hannah Fettig, Coastal Knits? If you have knit an Alana pattern before, then you know that they are thoughtful, well-written and yield stunning results.
So if you haven’t yet seen Alana’s beautiful new collection, Botanical Knits, then holy moly, are you ever in for a treat. I recently made Forest Floor
in a weekend, and I am still loving it. And I can’t wait to work my way
through the rest of the collection. It’s really hard to pick a favourite out of the 13 patterns, but these 6 are on my personal knit list (since I’ve already knit Forest Floor):
The collection is heavily inspired by nature, with different types of leaves featuring strongly in the designs. All the designs seem timeless, and the silhouettes are very flattering. There is something for everyone in this collection, but if you enjoy knitting hats and sweaters, I think you’ll be particularly smitten.You can check out the whole collection on Ravelry, or on botanicalknits.com .
Want a copy of this collection? Of course you do. You can order the print copy for $22 + shipping. As a special thank you for preordering, you get the e-book for free immediately. Or you can order the e–book by itself for $18.
