Echoes: 24 Modern Knits Inspired by Iconic Women features knitwear patterns dedicated to incredible women — both real and fictional — who have influenced the designer Susan Crawford’s life. The array of icons includes authors such as Beatrix Potter and Virginia Woolf, the musicians Cyndi Lauper and Kate Bush, as well as activists, artists, garden designers and more.
This versatile collection features a variety of styles and techniques. It includes cardigans, sweaters, vests, and a dress, as well as shawls, socks, hats, mittens, a blanket, and even a tie. Susan created the designs to resemble heirloom pieces, well-loved and handed down through generations, with stories interwoven into their fabric.
The book showcases the continuing impact of others on each of us, and how inspiration often works: creating layers within layers, echoes within echoes.
Susan Crawford is a British knitwear designer and author with her own hand-dyed yarn range. She is known for her work on modernising vintage knitwear patterns. Echoes is Susan’s eighth book.
