Floral Knits: 25 Contemporary Flower-Inspired Designs

Martin Storey. St. Martin’s/Griffin, $24.99 paper (136p) ISBN 978-1-250-04983-4
Flower power fuels this collection of 25 knitted accessories, sweaters, and home décor wares. Knitwear designer Storey (Aran Knits) focuses on creating flowers with texture and color, whether sewn on or knitted into the pattern. The Fleur cardigan and the Tulip beret and fingerless gloves use color work to create lovely garden rows around the hems and cuffs of each project. The monochromatic Herbaceous pillow and throw turn to texture to create items for the home out of assembled knit squares. The Bloom bag and brooch make use of funky over-sized knit flowers. The cabled Blossom sweater, socks, and fingerless gloves are finished with delicate flower embroidery. The first half of the book presents the projects and the second half details the patterns. Knitters looking for exotic varietals or abstract renditions of our flowered friends should look elsewhere; this collection focuses on pictorial representations of the more familiar, much-loved domestic garden residents.
