Wear any season in style with knitwear inspired by southern climates.Knitting is not just for cold and snowy climates! For anyone who has ever stopped to wonder what knitters in the South are wearing–and knitting–for the changing seasons, Florida designer Corrina Ferguson has set out to show us in Warm Days, Cool Knits: Lighter Designs for Every Season.In this gorgeous collection of knitted garments and accessories, up-and-coming designer Corrina has designed knitwear pieces appropriate for each southern season. Cardigans and hoodies stand in for winter coats, knitted tees and short-sleeve cardigans are perfect for spring, tanks and cropped cardis are comfortable on warm summer nights, and pullovers and shawls are just right in fall.Through her choice of lightweight yarns and bold colors, Corrina has set these pieces apart from the crowd of everyday knitted garments and shown them off as a versatile knitted southern wardrobe.
Corrina Ferguson is a knitwear designer living in Jacksonville, Florida. Her designs have been featured in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Twist Collective, Jane Austin Knits, and more magazines. This is her first book.
"The designs just look cooler, not just by using less fabric, but by using drape and open stitches. The designs are modern and feminine, with lots of lace and shaping in bold colors. Standouts for me by season are Winter: Lochlan hoodie; Spring: Coralue tee; Summer: Junius shawl; Fall: Bayard pullover." —Knitty"Corrina Ferguson's new book, Warm Days, Cool Knits answers my questions and more. It is a great resource because it includes 20 patterns in a wide range of projects, fibers, and weights. I was honestly surprised to learn not everything was a lace weight cotton or linen!" –Little Acorn Creations"Warm Days, Cool Knits by Corrina Ferguson is a book filled with designs to help you and me find great projects to do with these cotton, bamboo and rayon yarns. I put this book in the same category as Julie Turjoman's excellent book last year called Knits that Breathe. I fell in love with both of them. Whether you're knitting something cool to wear for hot weather or you are of a certain age with your own personal summer, both these books are wonderful." —My Central Jersey's "In Stitches" column"If you're a child of the south–no matter what country–these pretty patterns are sure to inspire you to start knitting garments that you can wear throughout the year. Even if you've never knit a top before, there are some relatively easy ones here, and some of the shawls are not too difficult either. They're also designed to be comfortable to knit in any season, with no heavy wools burdening your lap when you knit in the summer. That's sure to be appealing to knitters everywhere." –About.com/Knitting"No matter what the season, Corrina has five projects to knit for each. The photographs are clear, large and full of detail. Line drawings in step by step are included for methods called for in the instructions. Charts are given where needed." —Hartford Knitting Examiner"If you're looking for a great knitting pattern book with lovely wearables, and you love using charts, this one should definitely be on your list!" –Banana Moon Studio
