NO LONGER IN PRINT (as of 1/1/22) -- Don't wait, as we won't be getting any more!

Strange Brew is a guide for everyday knitters who might find designing a unique colorwork yoke a little bit daunting without a road map.

Written by Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits, Strange Brewoffers up a collection of 8 sweaters and 4 accessories in addition to the "design-your-own" yoke sweater recipe that is truly the heart of the book. Whether you prefer knitting bottom-up or top-down, this book will guide the way, including instructions for 3 gauges and 25 sizes for the whole family, from baby through women's 4XL plus male-specific sizing too.

The recipe includes:

  • Instructions for designing your sweater top-down or bottom-up
  • An overview of round yoke design
  • A "plug and play" round yoke guideline pattern (just follow the pattern - no math!)
  • Nearly 100 stitch patterns to get you started
  • A "wedge design" strategy for the more adventurous knitter

Book/Pattern features:

  • 8 sweaters + 4 accessories
  • patterns sized from baby to big (0-6 months to adult 4XL)
  • complimentary ebook with print book purchase (download code provided)
