Overview

From New York Times best-selling author Alice Hoffman and master knitter Lisa Hoffman comes Faerie Knitting, a magical melding of words and yarn where the ordinary is turned into the extraordinary and where imagination becomes creation.

The magic of storytelling and the magic of knitting — woven together in 14 original patterns inspired by each story.

Featuring original fairy tales, Faerie Knitting is an entrancing collection of stories of love and loss, trust and perseverance. Seamlessly woven into the plot of each tale is a magical garment or accessory inspired by the bravery and self-reliance of the tale's heroine and brought to life through an imaginative and bespoke knit pattern.

From the "Blue Heron Shawl" and the "Love Never Ending Cowl", to the "Three Wishes Mittens" and "Amulet Necklace", each project is as wearable as it is magical. Lush, atmospheric photography captures the enchanted faerie domain while beautifully rendered charts and instructions are well suited for beginner and advanced knitters alike.

Faerie Knitting is a rare gift for creators — and lovers — of magic.

Editorial Reviews

Shirley Paden

The Hoffmans have invited us to enter a magical world where adventures are enchanting, mysteries abound, and knitting projects and dreams come true.

Knitty.com

"This book is a delightful collaboration ...with strong girls and women at their center. The patterns and stories mesh wonderfully each enriching the other to create a timeless collection. The photography lifts the book to an otherworldly realm, full of mist and magic. This is an imaginative book that can be used to knit or read some enchantment into your life."

Fiber Flux

"The book is beautifully photographed ... with easy to navigate charts, guides, and diagrams to make things extra helpful. One thing I love about this book is the sheer variety of projects ... Each story in the book blends nicely with the accompanying project and reads just like a classic storybook ... feels like a special vintage book. One of my favorite projects from the book is ... the Blue Heron Shawl, which also graces the cover. I'm such a shawl fanatic and this one is absolutely exquisite."

Vogue Knitting

What a lovely gift, especially for the dreamy knitter as comfortable in the world of fantasy as she is in the world of wool.

Knitting I Love (YouTube)

"Like something ... from under the Christmas Tree."

Nicky Epstein

A beautiful book that takes flight and transports knitting to a magical place. I was enchanted by it all.

Mason Dixon Knitting

"In this unusual volume, bestselling novelist Alice Hoffman and knitwear designer Lisa Hoffman take knitting into the worlds of fairy tale, magic, and fantasy. I ... was intrigued by the imaginative ferment of these creative cousins. (Also: the knitting designs are beautiful.)"

Ann Hood

Faerie Knitting celebrates how stories and knitting can work their magic and save our lives. From the first page, I was enchanted.

Writer Magazine

"When Alice Hoffman – the Alice Hoffman ... releases a new book with her cousin, master knitter Lisa Hoffman, you sit up and pay attention ... With patterns like the ‘Amulet Necklace’ and ‘Witch Gloves,’ it’s just in time for Halloween. Perhaps weaving patterns from the Hoffman cousins’ book may be just the thing to unspool a bout of writer’s block this winter."

Craft Gossip

"The stories tell of the power of women and power of knitting, the magic of making and storytelling in ways that many knitters — and writers who knit, and knitters who write — will find familiar. It’s an interesting concept and the stories and knitting patterns are enjoyable alone and in combination."

Bookstr

Brilliant... the perfect book for lovers of books and of knitting.
