TSS Says:

21 Knit or crochet patterns to make women’s knitted fashion pieces i.e. LAKE (a long line tunic with deep vents); SONG (a semi fitted sweater with cables and braids); WEST (a lacy scarf), PRAIRIE (a sweater with eyelets and button edgings) and BIRCH (a crochet beret). The ‘how to make’ methods are in the traditional knitting pattern format, with text being black on a white background which means instructions are very clear and makes reading easy on the eye in any daylight setting or under artificial lighting. The design of this book and the photography is extremely pleasing. The three images above are from the book (image source: www.knitrowan.com), you will see that the model is pictured wearing the knitted items in natural outdoor settings in green or farmed fields, or in front of heritage style  buildings and fixtures. The Rowan yarns used are natural i.e. cotton and soft yak, and in colour tones with nature evoking names like Parsley and Sandstone. A must have book for those who love handmade fashion and working with yarn. Recommended
