Classic projects that will maintain their appeal for many years instead of just one or two fashion seasons. Designers are always referring to fashion’s rich history as they imagine its present and future, and retro looks remain ever-fresh as they are renewed―and restyled―for the next generation of wearers. That’s precisely what top knitwear designer Véronik Avery is up to in Knitting Classic Style. Avery has created 35 smashingly contemporary garments that take their cues from decades and designers past. Aimed at both beginning and more advanced knitters, the book’s projects range in difficulty from a simple drawstring purse, French beret, and Afghan-inspired slipper-socks to a shawl-collared cardigan, and Avery’s own reinterpretation of the trimly elegant Chanel jacket. The author introduces each project by explaining its historical/cultural roots.
Suzie says: “This is a beautiful book with such a range of styles there is something for everyone. You’ll also find plenty of technical knitting to get your teeth into.”
