A collaboration between handknit designers Alison Crowther-Smith & Donna Jones Designs.
Alison and Donna, who are Smith & Jones, are united by their artistic differences. Their individual approaches to their craft create a vibrant and highly complementary collection, achieving a sense of design balance that can elude a solo-designer.
Smith & Jones Knits are delighted to present their first book together:
A knitting collection that expresses the spirit of our own British landscapes throughout the seasons. Twenty four designs by knitting collaborative Smith & Jones, capturing romance, comfort, folk-art – and stylish, timeless grace.
‘Elements’ is a collaborative knitting collection. It will take you on a journey through a year in the British landscapes where the two authors live and work, echoing the English and Welsh land and seascapes where each designer finds herself to be in her element. This collection captures the elements of weather and seasons, but at its heart it is close to home, drawing you into the comfort of home and garden throughout the year.
The designs range in complexity, from straightforward easy knitting to projects that offer more of a challenge, and are suitable for knitters with basic to more advanced levels of expertise. Those wishing to develop their abilities further will benefit from the full colour photograph technique section, in which the designers clearly show you how to develop new skills.
Knitted in beautiful Rowan yarns, ‘Elements’ includes 24 hand knit designs, including accessories, garments and home-wares. ‘Elements’ is a striking collection, moving from beautiful folk-art inspired comfort, to spare and elegant style as the two designers lead you into their creative worlds. And finally, it is a true example of the whole definitely being greater than the sum of its parts: two designers in one inspiring book.
