Knit, Swirl – Coat of Many Colors in Mountain Colors Yarns

Coat of Many Colors Kit in Twizzle or Mountain Goat yarns ...
and all "Knit, Swirl"  PDFs ... all 20% Off!

Published back in 2011, Sandra McIver's award-winning book “Knit, Swirl!” has become a knitting classic. The hardcover book is out of print,  but the good news is its now available as a PDF! ... and if all you need is the popular Coat of Many Colors pattern, it's available as individual PDF!

Not familiar with this wonderful book? “Knit, Swirl!” is a remarkable set of eighteen designs for these unique swirl jackets. The basic concept is a series of concentric rings that create the collar, lapels, and front and lower back with one seam that runs from cuff to cuff to create the arms, front bodice, and back neck. All eighteen elegant sweater jackets are written in three sizes and are designed to be flattering to all figures.

The cover of the book shows the Coat of Many Colors ... perhaps the most knit design in the book. We have kits for this design in both Mountain Goat and Twizzle yarns from Mountain Colors!
