Modern Women’s Knits (eBook)


Modern Men’s Knits is a collection of 11 designs using Valley Tweed, Moordale, Softyak DK, Cotton Cashmere, Felted Tweed Aran, and Island Blend, from designer Jen Geigley. Classic shapes and texture work, combined with a tonal colour palette, give this collection a timeless quality.




Knit in colour. Introducing Modern Women’s Knits, where neutrals meet colour. I truly love a good neutral. Over the years, I have knitted with many wonderful hues of grey, navy, black and white. But lately, I haven’t been able to resist the exploration of intense, saturated colour in combination with these neutrals. I find inspiration in pop art, contemporary art, cubism and abstract expressionism. The art world is an endless source of colour inspiration. The works of Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Wassily Kandinsky and Claes Oldenburg are some of my favourites. Their art inspires me to knit in colour and play with new techniques, such as adding contrast stitching or patchwork to knitwear. My hope is that you’ll have fun knitting the patterns in this collection and perhaps knit something you might not ordinarily knit. Create something that is entirely colourful; entirely you.  – Jen Geigley
