Little Red in the City Review

Little Red in the City is a new knitting book that is half design and half patterns. The layout and design is absolutely beautiful in both the hard cover and ebook.

There are 2 video reviews below- with text and videos following if you prefer to read a shorter version.



 What you need to know:
  • The book is long- over 250 pages, and the patterns are best for people who want to customize their knitting to their size.
  • Hardcover books come with a free ebook version of the book.
  • There are only 7 patterns- great patterns!- but if you are expecting a 250 page book full of patterns, that is not the case- most of the book is devoted to technique.
  • The patterns are not the typical “book layout” of patterns- shoved in to as small a space as possible. The patterns are longer (10+ pages), with all the information you need to make the pattern right there.

 Who this book is NOT for:
  • If you don’t want to do a fair bit of reading, or prefer really short (2-3 page) patterns, this may not be the best book for you.
  • Knitters who don’t want to spend the time finding their own perfect size.

 Who this book is for:
  • Intermediate+ level knitters who have a good idea of their size (or want to).
  • People interested in designing their own patterns.
 The layout has lots of great photos throughout!

Includes very (very!) detailed instructions for techniques- especially waist and bust shaping.

Schematics aren't the usual boring old black and white line drawing.

You can get the book at your LYS or online: Little Red in the City.  Remember that with the hardcover book you get a free copy of the ebook.
