While the book includes traditional warm weather stalwarts like cotton and linen, it also features patterns using the best of newer natural offerings like yarns made of or blended with hemp, bamboo, and soysilk. More than 80 full-color photos showcase these beautiful light knits.Kristi Porter (La Jolla, CA) is an author, designer, technical editor, and teacher.
