  • Echoes by Susan Crawford

    1 item left


    Echoes: 24 Modern Knits Inspired by Iconic Women is a book featuring knitwear patterns that pay tribute to real and fictional women who have profoundly impacted the designer Susan Crawford's life. The book includes patterns inspired by authors such as Beatrix Potter and Virginia Woolf, musicians like Cyndi Lauper and Kate Bush, as well as activists, artists, garden designers, and more.

    This collection is versatile and includes a variety of styles and techniques, featuring cardigans, sweaters, vests, jackets, a dress, as well as shawls, socks, hats, mittens, and even a tie. Susan designed each piece to look like an heirloom, a cherished item passed down from generation to generation, with stories woven into their fabric.

    The book is a testament to the enduring impact that others have on our lives and how inspiration can work - creating layers within layers, echoes within echoes.

    “Every piece of this collection is carefully intertwined with the next: stories, inspiration, colours and yarns are all different yet connected, creating a knitted tapestry, echoes of each one woven together. I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I have done!”

    Susan Crawford is a British knitwear designer, fashion historian and author known for her work on modernising vintage knitwear patterns. She lives in the Lake District in North West England — an area with stunning landscapes that also impact her work. Susan is particularly inspired by the stories carried within textiles and the intertwining of history and stitches. Echoes is Susan’s eighth book.
