What happens when 30 star designers get together for charity? Something very special - and that’s the best way to describe the book Knit Red: Stitching for Women’s Heart Health, edited by Laura Zander.
This amazing collection features patterns from a stellar cast including Debbie Bliss, Kim Hargreaves, Nicky Epstein, Norah Gaughan, Ysolda Teague, Jared Flood, Martin Storey, Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Deborah Newton... the list of exciting names goes on.
The designs are mainly for women – yes, they all knitted in red – and they include gorgeous shawls, cowls, scarves, hats, bags, socks, cardigans and sweaters, as well as a few items for the home.
Interspersed between the patterns you’ll also find heart healthy tips and recipes.
Five percent of profits from sales of the book will go to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health to support research and education into women’s heart health.
We recommend you buy this book, and knit something for yourself or for a friend to show you care. Get a preview of all the patterns. Knit Red is available from Amazon.
