139 Bare Naked Knitspot 2013 eBook

This eBook is the companion volume for the Knitspot Bare Naked Club 2013, a collection of essays, photos, and knitting projects that explores the wonderful world of fiber in its natural, undyed state to learn about and appreciate the unique characteristics of each.

The book is organized into 6 monthly chapters, each chapter includes breed information and history, knitting patterns, designer notes, and beautiful photography of the featured fiber. Projects are designed to take advantage of the unique characteristics of unique farm yarn selections

Fibers covered will include a range of animal and/or vegetable fibers (sheep, goat, camelids, yak, silk, and cotton are some possibilities) in shades from cream to khaki to gray to chocolate—”sheepy” yarns if you will. Some will be soft, some will be lustrous, some will have stout, sturdy character that softens over time with long use (like vintage blue jeans). Yarn weights will vary; projects will focus on accessories, scarves, and shawls (possibly including a sock or baby item) that feature lace and openwork stitch patterns.

Patterns include: Billow Cloud Cowl (18 sts/inch), Billow Cloud Infinity Scarf (18 sts/inch), Caravan Blanket (12 sts/inch), Caravan Scarf/Wrap (14 sts/inch), Cheviot Hills (24 sts/inch), Cirrus Mitts (23 sts/inch), Empreinte (24 sts/inch), Feuillage (23 sts/inch), Fringetree Shawl (22 sts/inch), Gobi Cap (14 sts/inch), Gobi Mittens (16 sts/inch), Hornpipe Gansey Sock (30 sts/inch), I Like It Rough (18 sts/inch), I'm a Soft Touch (22 sts/inch)
