Silver Screen Knits: It’s Here!

Marilyn Monroe Sweater

Hurrah! The book is ready. [Marilyn Monroe Sweater by Kathleen Lawton-Trask.]

I’ve written a book! A collection of chic, wearable designs honoring the stars of cinema’s golden era, Silver Screen Knits will transport you back to old Hollywood. Read about each garment’s cinematic inspiration while you work with luxurious yarns and unique designs.

Volume I includes patterns by Ann Weaver, Veera Välimäki, Karida Collins, Danielle Romanetti, Becky Wolf, and me.
