By Renée Callahan, aka @eastlondonknit
The Zen Variations is a book with 6 sweater patterns, embracing the idea of knitting as a physical mediation.
Each sweater begins in the same way with a top-down, set-in sleeve construction, and then develops with variations on the theme of Zen. Each pattern has a simple, clean design to showcase the rustic beauty of the yarn.
For more information and a view of each of the sweaters, see http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/the-zen-variations-for-the-fibre-co
The book comes with a code for a digital download as well.
About Renée, aka EastLondonKnit:
After studying fashion design with knitwear at Central Saint Martins college, I began to hoard yarn and a range of knitting machines. I love textiles and technical challenge of knitting. There is real joy in producing something both useful and beautiful.
I am constantly creating new patterns and combinations of texture and colour and spend as much time as I can hand knitting. I love to see new knitters taking to the needles and teach a range of knitting classes.
I have a podcast and have taught a Craftsy.com class on machine knitting.
