Coffeehouse Knits: Knitting Patterns and Essays with Robust Flavor
The projects in Coffeehouse Knits are the knitting equivalent of a morning coffee ritual. They’re simple but elegant, made in lush yarns that are a joy to knit with and a pleasure to wear. All you have to focus on is simple knit and purl stitches, with an occasional cable or lace pattern to pique your interest. It has that same meditative quality; it’s comforting to do a repetitive task that’s familiar and predictable.
With 20 projects to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect project. I’m especially enamored of the Chocolate Challah Pullover. The simple stockinette-stitch body is worked in the round, making it an easy knit for when you’re chatting with friends or listening to podcasts. It also nicely offsets the wide saddle-style shoulders that come together to create a dramatic V-neck and back yoke. The alpaca-blend yarn make it a great sweater for both curling up in an armchair and showing off your knitting skills.
