The Botanical Knits books incorporate the natural beauty of plant life into twelve elegant garments and accessories.

Botanical Knits, the first book in the series, includes four sweaters for every occasion, a stylish cloche, a matching pair of textured socks and mittens, and an elegant leaf-bordered wrap. In the follow up collection, Botanical Knits 2, traveling cables, organic textured stitches, and lacy stitch patterns make a reappearance. Each botanically inspired piece offers charted and written pattern instructions that are easy to follow and fun to knit.
