Knitwear designer Nicky Epstein takes inspiration from around the globe in her new pattern book, Knitting On Top Of The World.
Categorized by country, the book includes 50 unique patterns, which are both elegant and practical. Wrap up in a starlet-inspired Roman Holiday Shrug, stand out in a Highland Fling Plaid Jacket or dress up for the occasion with a formal Evening Gala Aran top. There's even a range of accessories, such as a Shanghai Garden Scarf, Petite Fancy Fair Isle tea cozy and a Great Plains Blanket Bag.
The thing I like best about this book is that it focuses more on the patterns than the techniques - after all how many knitting books do you need which tell you exactly the same thing?! So, bring some hand-knitted couture to your wardrobe and stay stylish and warm this Christmas.
