The Beatrix Potter Knitting Book
By Pat Menchini

More than 50 delightful handknits for all the family

A complete range of classic fashion garments for all ages from babies to adults, both men and women. The patterns, which are all based on Beatrix Potter’s own watercolours, include a beautiful christening robe, pramsuits, cosy outfits for toddlers, practical and pretty sweaters and tops for active children, elegant fashion garments for women, and chunky knits for men. Some have motifs based on the well-loved characters, other have specially created jacquard and textured designs inspired by Beatrix Potter’s flower and landscape paintings. Several garments are made from the wool of Herwick sheep, the hardy upland breed which Beatrix Potter herself bred on her Lake District farms. Charts, diagrams, details form the patterns and international concersion tables added to the clarity of the instructions make this beautifully laid-out book straightforward to follow for even the inexperienced knitter, while the expert will find plenty of challenge in the intricacy of some of the designs
