Madder: Anthology 2: Simple Pleasures by Carrie Bostick Hoge
Madder: Anthology 2: Simple Pleasures by Carrie Bostick Hoge is a collection of 17 knitting projects that feature classic, wearable designs. Many of the patterns are constructed with basic stitch patterns and make use of simple shaping.
Patterns like the Lila pullover are offered in two variations, such as a worsted-weight top-down construction (Lila Top Down) or a bulky-weight version (Lila Winter).
The Charlotte Light Mitts are knit mostly in easy ribbing and garter stitch, with short-row shaping for the hand portion.
Straightforward design and pattern construction, combined with gorgeous photography by the author, make this an excellent resource for knitters.
