Summary

Whether you are looking for a simple scarf, chic evening wrap, or classic shawl, this book by Louisa Harding, one of the world's most influential designers, will inspire you to create beautiful hand-knitted garments. Harding's signature feminine style is showcased in this beautiful collection. Beginners will appreciate the simple and delicate stitch pieces, which result in surprisingly sophisticated fashions. Intermediate and advanced knitters will value the projects that involve more complex techniques incorporating lace, cable, and beading.
Each design features a brief introduction that reveals the creative inspiration behind it and unlocks some of the secrets of the artistic process. Step-by-step instructions for each shawl, wrap, and scarf are accompanied by gorgeous color photographs of the finished work. With its blend of traditional techniques and modern sensibilities, Shawls, Wraps, and Scarves will appeal to knitters who want to learn new skills and to those looking for fresh ideas and creative inspiration.

Author Biography

Louisa Harding is a leading knitwear designer with a worldwide reputation for romantic, beautifully flattering, classically-inspired designs. She is the author of several influential guides including Knitting Little Luxuries: Beautiful Accessories to Knit, Knits From an English Rose, and Modern Classics. She has worked alongside her husband, Stephen, a photographer, to create the Miss Bea series of knitting books, inspired by their children. Her work has been published in prominent knitting publications including Vogue Knitting and Interweave Knits, and some of her earliest designs appeared in Rowan Magazine No. 6. In 2005 she was very fortunate to be given the opportunity of introducing her eponymous line of yarns and pattern publications, Louisa Harding Yarns. Returning to the textile heritage of her Yorkshire home in October 2016, Louisa and her husband launched Yarntelier, a bespoke collection of Cashmere yarns and patterns. She lives in Yorkshire, England.
