Tempest knitting pattern book - hand knitting patterns
Tempest is a collection of handknit patterns by Vancouver knitwear designer, Holli Yeoh, for the artisan hand-dyed yarn company, SweetGeorgia Yarns.
Being on the West Coast, we tend to be pre-occupied with the weather, so it’s no surprise that we were inspired by the idea of the Tempest. Rainstorms. Cloudbursts. Monsoons. Tides rise and fall. Waves ebb and flow. Storms rage and we seek refuge from the wild and fierce Tempest. These designs embody both the shelter and the storm.
In its 84 pages, you’ll find 11 beautifully crafted patterns including garments, hats, mitts, cowls, and blankets. Tempest is available now as both a physical book and a digital e-book.
Patterns: Seaswell (cardigan), Watermark (cowl neck pullover), Procella (hat and fingerless mitts), First Beach (cowl), Second Beach(cowl), Third Beach(cowl), Eventide (pullover), Stormwatch (pullover), Breakers (bulky cowl), Ebb & Flow (blanket in 3 sizes), Haven (poncho)
