Knit. Swirl! by Sandra McIver

Lisa and I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra McIver at TNNA in June (she’s lovely!) and of seeing some samples of her “Coat of Many Colors” knit up at the Mountain Colors booth (see cover image below). While the book photography is gorgeous, pictures can’t possibly capture the beauty of the colours and texture of this garment – it truly is a work of art. We were completely besotted and promptly ordered copies of the book along with kits for the coat from Mountain Colors in all 7 colourways. Lisa will be knitting up the Wild Rose version while I’ll be doing the Sunflower option – which colour theme speaks to you?

Books are now is stock and kits are due to arrive early Fall.

All the book patterns can be previewed on the Knit. Swirl! website here – every single one is stunning and can be knit with the appropriate yarns of your choosing.
