A good book can help you pass the time. A great book transports its reader directly into the story. Relive your favorite books and discover a few you might have missed along the way. Lit Knits subtly combines the timelessness of classic literature with everyday knitwear for men and women unlike others before.
As you knit you become part of the story through the use of thoughtfully captioned patterns and designs. The comprehensive collection of mittens, hat, infinity scarf, socks, blanket, hoodie, shawl, and mitts use different stitches to embody parts of each story. For instance, the texture in the Sail To Treasure Island blanket design represents a map of Treasure Island inspired by the story Treasure Island, first published in 1883 by Robert Louis Stevenson. Knit from the center out, X marks the spot that covers the rocky mountains, thick forests, beach and ocean using various knitting stitches and techniques. Printed in the USA, the book is of high quality using environmentally friendly materials.
From 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea to Black Beauty, each of the 10 designs brings a bit of the story out of the book and into daily living.
