Fresh Fashion Knits from Rowan’s Studio Collection. Designs by Sarah Hatton.

When I think of Rowan, I think of classic. I think timeless, and this book doesn’t disappoint.  Out of the 20+ designs, I only found 2 that I really didn’t like and 4 or 5 that I didn’t really care to knit. A pretty good average actually.

This collection includes playful skirts, sexy tops, chic dresses, and delicate cardigans, straight off the runway and straight into innovative knitwear.

Along with clear instructions to these designs, Rowan provides the tips and techniques knitters find helpful to transform these designs into the season’s hottest accessories.

This is definitely a must-have book!

    What makes Rowan books so wonderful is the UK desinger’s sense of style that sets them apart from American designers. I’d love to have this book for that reason.

    I have been looking for a long sweater pattern like the one on the cover of this book for ages. I saw a similar one on a lady in Los Altos, CA when I was visiting there and I’m afraid I was stalking her trying to get a closer look :)

    I am from Lithuania and we have really cold winters, they say, this year it’ll be as cold as -40C. So, fashionable and warm knits are a must here. That’s why i reaaaally want this book.

    I really want to expand my crafting into knitting and what better way than with some major style! Send that book my way!

  7. Julie on October 18, 2010 7:21 am

  8. Mylyne on October 18, 2010 7:24 am

    I would like to own it because my knitwear needs updating.

  10. Susan Spiers on October 18, 2010 9:14 am

    I luv to knit & have been doing so since I was a child, taught by my father, believe it or not! Have to have this book, luv Sarah Hatton designs!

    Rowan is one of the top classic knit design houses that incorporates the true sense of european flair to update rather than overpower patterns that can become out of style faster than you can knit them. Rowan is a name of quality that just brings pleasure at the word itself. Not just translated to one continents style scene, the timeless of thier patterns translate to the cutting edge of the American style scene as well. My hands tingle with pleasure at the thought of owning this book and the possibilities contained within!

    I’d love to have this book for all the great patterns, but in particular, the coat on the cover (cables are my friends now, thank you!) and the black(or blue, hard to tell in the photo I was online) and white sweater with the unusual sleeves.

  13. turtle on October 18, 2010 10:09 am

    it seems Rowan patterns always call to my inner knitting designer. You know the one…the designer i would love to someday be but it prob won’t happen…. Rowan always fills those shoes so i can spend my time knitting vs trying to design! So for this reason i would adore this book!

  14. RD on October 18, 2010 10:25 am

    I’d like to expand my knit wardrobe with more than just sweaters.

  15. MMW on October 18, 2010 1:55 pm

    I need this book because I am looking for some great news ideas to knit. This one sounds perfect for many different patterns.

  16. Amanda on October 18, 2010 3:21 pm

    I love knitting and I’m always looking for something new and fresh to make. I would love to have this book to add to my collection.

  17. Knittaroo on October 18, 2010 4:30 pm

    I would love this book because Rowan has patterns that are just my style and I’m on a serious knitting spree recently.

  18. LizzieK8 on October 19, 2010 5:24 am

    Now that I’ve lost all this weight, knitting something for myself other than socks is appealing!

  19. Kimberly R. on October 19, 2010 7:29 am

    Please enter me – I would love to knit the gorgeous cabled cardigan on the cover and I’m sure there are many more beautiful patterns inside :)

  20. Teresa on October 19, 2010 11:05 am

    I want it because I would love to knit the cover sweater.

  21. geri actor on October 19, 2010 12:07 pm

    That looks like an interesting book and I generally like Rowan patterns. Want the book so I can make some of them ;-). Thanks!

  22. Jeanne on October 19, 2010 4:17 pm

    I want it because my tall thin daughter wants the cover sweater coat for Christmas!

  23. Qiwen on October 20, 2010 3:31 am

    I want this book because knitwears have become so fashionable lately. Then again, I think knitwears have always been very fashionable, just that people forgot. I knit and I like fashion. This book will be a constant reminder for me that to knit is the best thing that I have picked up. Knitting fashion for the win!!!!!!!

  24. tantej on October 20, 2010 5:11 am

    Looks amazing and I haven’t had a chance to knit a Rowan pattern yet!
