The Original Annabelle Fox - An exclusive knitwear collection
Rich, intense colours and soft glowing hues combine with ethnic motifs and depictions of flora and fauna to create this collection of original and inspired patterns by one of the most talented and exciting knitwear designers of today. This beautiful book has over 80 specially commissioned photographs taken on location in the Mediterranean where the quality of the light enhances the warm colours and texture of the yarn.
Annabel Fox believes that knitwear should be accessible and uncomplicated, so many of the patterns are simple to knit and can also be adapted to fit a child or an adult. Varied and versatile yarns suited to all seasons are used to create simple yet stylish sweaters in vibrant colours, as well as smart contrasting black and white, or sumptuous chunky-textured sweaters prolifically decorated with Chinese dragons, running deer, Indian elephants or abstract patches of bright colour. Many of the garments have been enlivened with lavish ornamentation - vivid embroidery, attractive tassels, shiny sequins and lustrous beads - add to that final exotic touch for a special occasion.
All the patterns include clear instructions and easy-to-follow charts to enable any competent knitter to make these lovely garments. Designed with the whole family in mind - from toddlers to teens and parents to grandparents there is something for everyone to wear and enjoy.
Rowan-Anaya Originals combine outstanding knitwear design with the range and quality of Rowan Yarns.
