They've been knitted thousands of times by hundreds of knitters around the world. Now the most beloved, fashionable designs from the pages of Knitscene magazine have been collected into a single book for the first time. Among the patterns included are the Central Park Hoodie, Geodesic Cardigan, Phiaro Scarf, and more, all of which have received praise from the knitting community. Some of these issues from which these patterns have been taken are out of print and are now being reprinted for the first time in The Best of Knitscene. The patterns have been updated with corrections, additional sizes, technique tutorials, and tips. The Best of Knitscene also features interviews and profiles of popular designers such as Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Star Athena, and Kate Gagnon Osborn. Also offered are behind-the-scenes photos and stories, offering readers an inside glimpse of their favorite magazine.
