Echoes by Susan Crawford
Echoes: 24 Modern Knits Inspired by Iconic Women features knitwear patterns dedicated to incredible women - both real and fictional - who have influenced Susan Crawford's life; such as authors Beatrix Potter and Virginia Woolf, musicians Cyndi Lauper and Kate Bush, and also photographers, activists, artists, businesswomen and more. Each design is accompanied by an essay discussing its inspiration and why they have been so important to Susan.
This versatile collection features a variety of styles and techniques. It includes cardigans, sweaters, vests, jackets, and a dress, as well as shawls, socks, hats, mittens, and even a tie. Susan intended the designs to resemble heirloom pieces, well-loved and handed down through generations, with stories interwoven into their fabric. The book showcases the continuing impact of others on each of us, and how inspiration often works: creating layers within layers, echoes within echoes.
From Susan: I hope the book provides you with many things you would like to knit and that you will turn to this book again and again and that it will become as dog-eared, worn and loved as any novel that has been read and re-read.
Susan Crawford is a British knitwear designer and writer. She is well-known for her work on researching and modernising vintage knitwear, and this is her eighth book.
