If you are a fan of Jane Austen and an avid knitter, you will love this beautiful book.
"The Best of Jane Austen Knits: 27 Regency-Inspired Designs", edited by Amy Clarke Moore is a gorgeous collage of beautiful knitting patterns.
Stunning photographs and information about Jane Austen and her time and life provide the reader with a real sense of living history.
Of particular interest to yarn and fibre enthusiasts is information on yarns, knitting and dressmaking in Regency England.
The book is beautifully styled, with great attention to detail. It truly evokes a time and place when beauty was more important than function.
The knitting projects in this book include shawls, wraps, cardigans, vests and even a tea cosy. Not every project is easily usable, but each and every one is beautiful and will inspire knitters looking for something a bit different.
Beginners will feel inspired but may find the patterns daunting. You will get the most out of this book if you are an advanced knitter.
