Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads: A Modern Knitter's Guide to Discovering and Exploring Style.pdf
In Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads, Cirilia Rose pulls back the curtain and takes readers behind the scenes of the design process, showing them how she curates and organises ideas and translates them into knitwear designs. In the process, she gives readers the tools they need to explore and define their own style and to begin to adapt patterns to their own style. She also provides instructions for 25 of her own fashion-fresh projects to knit. Cirilia's book is divided into three themes: Magpies, designing accessories for the small amounts of precious yarns that knitters inevitably collect but don't necessarily know what to do with; Homebodies, designing garments for time spent close to home; and Nomads, designing garments to wear when we're venturing into the world to meet friends and gather inspiration.
Cirilia Rose is the creative director for the yarn company Skacel Collection Inc and a former staff designer, photo stylist and resident blogger/tweeter for Berroco. She has a bachelor's degree in consumer culture and studied aesthetics, consumerism and gender in graduate school.
