By Hannah Thiessen.

A collection of highly wearable interesting to knit patterns by an impressive roster of well known designers combined with essays on thoughtful yarn and fibre production.

Print book

In five chapters centered around the tenets of slow knitting—sourcing carefully, making thoughtfully, thinking environmentally, experimenting fearlessly, and exploring openly—Hannah Thiessen challenges knitters of all skill levels to view their practice in a new way. Each chapter begins with an exploration of a fiber type, then moves into profiles of well-known yarn types, makers, and yarn suppliers, and ends with garment patterns inspired by the featured fiber. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasises what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.
