Get a Head Start on Stunning Stitches!

Have you ever had a hopeless crush on a designer?

A following-them-on-social-media, knitting-everything-they-publish, name-dropping-at-every-opportunity crush that gradually took over your Ravelry queue AND your stash in real life?

Well, ours is Jen Lucas.

After nearly a decade of knitting experience, Jen left her job testing municipal wastewater to become a full-time knitting designer in 2014 (good call, Jen.) You may have seen her work on Ravelry (where her patterns are extrememly popular), in your favorite knitting magazines, or on the cover of her many successful knitting books including the Sock-Yarn Shawls series and others.

Of course, you may also have heard Jen’s name here at The Yarn Patch. It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Jen’s designs- we’ve chosen them for sample knits, featured them in our very first fashion show, and now we’re so excited about Jen’s newest book that we’re taking orders in advance!

In Stunning Stitches, Jen Lucas explores the beautiful potential of seven distinctive stitch patterns from simple knits-and-purls to luxurious cables and lace. Each of these captivating stitch patterns is translated into three unique accessories that show off their beauty and versatility- for a total of 21 gorgeous shawls, cowls, and more! Stunning Stitches is an excellent study for knitters of all skill levels, and as always Jen’s designs promise to be a treat to knit and to wear!

We’ve preordered a limited number of Stunning Stitches, so if like us you just can’t wait to get your hands on these irresistable patterns visit us in the shop or give us a call to reserve your copy soon. Meanwhile, you can check out past Jen Lucas favorites from The Yarn Patch. Enjoy!
