Knitting-Outside-the-Box-Digital-Cover (1)

After a sell out weekend at Rhinebeck, we’re so happy to reveal the 15 patterns that make up Knitting Outside the Box!  

If you haven’t heard, read or seen all about our latest book with the one and only Bristol Ivy, then where have you been? Knitting Outside the Box is a unique exploration of Bristol’s design process, featuring creative exercises to help you explore the ‘What if?’ you’ve been wondering about your knitting. The book includes a comprehensive stitch dictionary which provides technical information on how to shape and manipulate fabric, and concludes by bringing all the methods together to help you evolve an idea into a finished pattern.

Even without the addition of these adventures that Bristol invites you to have with your knitting, Knitting Outside the Box is still a pattern book – and now that the wait is over, here they are!
