I did some graphic design work for Katya (aka the bingeknitter) a few years back and that is how I became familiar with her work. She is a very talented knitwear designer and when I heard she was designing a book dedicated to knits for boys I was really excited. And totally honored when she asked me to be a stop on her blog tour.
This book couldn't be more fitting for me. Being a mom of two boys I certainly know that modern, stylish knitting patterns for boys can be hard to come by. How refreshing it was to see that Katya solved this problem with her new book Boys' Knits. This wonderful book offers 16 very cool, modern and fun to knit sweaters for boys. We're talking sweaters for boys in the 4-14+ age range. How awesome is that?!
Not only is there a wide range of boy-friendly styles but guess what? They are all seamless designs that are worked from the bottom up. Gotta love that!
In this book you'll find stylish vests…
And even colorwork…
I love them all but I think for me, I'll have to cast on for DAX first!
Lucky for us - or should I say one of us :) Katya was generous enough to offer a copy for a giveaway! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the book. I'll draw a lucky winner next week and email you your own copy Boys' Knits.
