This week’s craft post is a review of Lost in the Woods by Julia Günther, Robynn Weldon & Emily K Williams. That is 3 designers from 3 different countries that have come together to form a beautiful, cohesive collection of garments and accessories to knit.
Yes, I’ll admit the title and premise alone would have been enough for me to pick up the book. As you scroll through the pages, your eyes are drawn to the stunning photography which is a beautiful blend of nature and knitwear. I started by merely browsing but was quickly drawn in to the beautiful sweeping landscapes which led to both a brioche scarf (Pravigan) and a pair of fingerless gloves (Ruskanvalo) grabbing my attention and had me scrolling my Ravelry stash for yarn ideas. If you don’t believe me just browse #lostinthewoodscollection on Instagram and boy, you are in for a treat.
The book has 6 accessory patterns and you can tell there was a lot of thought put in to each and every one. This book provides a wide range of techniques but yet has a pattern that is appealing to all knitting levels. These go from colorwork to lace, brioche to cables and textured stitch patterns to a combination of the above.
There are 6 garments in this collection with 1 to be released early 2017. What I like most is that there are different garments made to fit and flatter all different shapes and sizes. From the swirling yoke of Doundruff to the cables of Regensberg, each designer has added something magical to each garment. The colourwork of Wildbert is especially striking to me. Thankfully tutorials on the techniques are included and make it easier to fine tune your knitting skills.
The release of this ebook was a little different, with the release of each pattern spread throughout November with an extra something special to come in 2017. I like that there is this extra surprise gift to come and that you can buy the patterns individually but honestly this whole collection is enchanting. If you would like to join in the Knit-A-Long for the collection it is happening over in Miranda’s Lounge on Ravelry and of course you can play along on Instagram too with the hashtag #lostinthewoodscollection.
