Inspired by women's clothing, lingerie, and accessories from the 1900's to 1930's, A Handknit Romance offers designs that are intricate and exquisite. Step back in time with techniques including pin-tucks, picot trims, crochet edges, lace beading, and embroidery that convey modest and flirty classic fitted patterns using a range of lace, superfine, fine, and light yarn weights.

Attention to detail is demonstrated throughout and the result is a collection of unique, precious garments that reflect today's vogue for vintage-inspired fashion. Rowan designer Jennie Atkinson offers beautiful projects that range from small accessories to full-size garments and suit beginner and seasoned knitters alike.

Along with a fresh assortment of beautiful garments and accessories, you'll find advice on yarn substitutions as well as tips on how the patterns can be customized to fit all sizes. A Handknit Romance is the ideal design book for knitters who embrace creativity and the want to produce truly unique pieces
