Book Description

Fall is an ever-popular season for knitters, and with November Knits you can knit warm and stylish garments and accessories to make the season a little cozier. Popular knit designers and authors Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn join forces with all-star contributors, including Melissa LaBarre, Cirilia Rose, Cecily Glowik McDonald, Kristen TenDyke, and many more.

Capture the essence of fall with 20 projects that range from casual cardigans and scarves to sweet, stylish wraps and sweaters.

The book is divided into three moods:
  • Farm Hands is the most casual design section, filled with rustic and durable garments to shield you through afternoons in a brisk wind.
  • Ivy League features sophisticated and smart knitwear, featuring bolder colors and classic styling.
  • Down Home is ideal for holidays and special occasions, bringing warmth and comfort to slightly dressier garments. These patterns feature elegant knitted lace, layered and worked for warmth.

With knitted garments and accessories by expert designers, November Knits is a must-have resource.



Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Many knitting books have a few good patterns, but in this one, with almost every turn of a page, crafters will find something that makes them want to pick up the needles. The premise is a bit convoluted. The title “evokes the essence of fall and early winter,” but the projects offered in three chapters—“Farm Hands” (rustic yet stylish), “Ivy League” (classic New England), “Southern Comfort” (feminine and decorative)—don’t always seem to support the theme. That said, each project gets a lovely introduction, and the sweaters, scarves, socks, hats, and mittens are on display in crisply colored photographs, and some are helpfully photographed from different angles. The instructions are clear, and the schematics usefully placed. There’s bang for the buck here with more than 20 projects, all by up-and-coming designers, and all delightfully profiled. Knitters will return to this one again and again. --Ilene Cooper

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book As We Shift Into the Fall Season September 28, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As fall is upon us and the colder weather hits, it is knitting season again. This book is filled with inspiring knits for the colder season. I love the variety and lovely patterns in this book. The sizing is for real women, not just those of us who are teeny-tiny.

My favorite patterns are the Barnwood Pullover knit with Manos Del Uraguay yarn in a rib stitched pattern with variegated dark gray yarn. The Burdock Cardigan is super lovely. It is knit in a bright green using worsted weight yarn. It can be used to dress up or down - it has that flexibility of use. I also love the Market Jacket in a soft tannish orange, knit with worsted weight yarn with running flowered cables and a collar. The Savannah Cardigan is sweet and light-weight, knit with sportweight yarn and size five needles. It is in a soft blue-gray hue with a low collar. It looks very feminine. The Abilene Cardigan caught my eye. It is knit in a dark gray with worsted weight yarn. There is a pattern near the top, the bottom of the sleeves and the sweater bottom, but most of it is strict stockinette stitch. I'd love to try knitting it, perhaps in a lighter color. I love the Bluebonnet Scarf. It is knit in a variegated rose color from Schaefer yarns, 50% wool and 50% silk, with size six needles. It is stunning, utilizing lace and beads. I have a friend named Elke who would love the Spanish Moss Leg Warmers. They seem to have her name all over them. They are in a light green hue with a lace pattern and are knit with fingering weight yarn.

When I get any knitting book I ask myself three questions:

Will I knit the patterns?

Are the instructions clear?

Will the book be a good resource?

The answer to all three of these questions is YES. I love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! October 17, 2012
Format:Paperback
I loved Vintage Modern Knits when Kate and Courtney published it, I didn't think a single book could get any better. This one has. Don't get me wrong, I still adore VMK and have several items I've made from it. I could also easily make every pattern in the first "Farm Hands" section of this book. I already have several of them clipped with what yarn to use. I'm not too preppy so the second "Ivy League" section isn't my favorite but I could still do the Cobblestone Trench coat and love it. The "Southern Comfort" section surprised me that I found so much I liked even though I'm no where near the south. The shrug, sweaters and leg warmers are terrific. And just to let everyone know, I'm 59 years old, live in Montana and love to stay stylish. I'm slim and love hand-knit sweaters with boots. You're only as old as you feel so I would recommend this book for anyone of any age who likes to knit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! October 14, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am thrilled with this book! I want to make so many of the patterns! My Rav queue got much longer when I flipped through this book. There are 21 patterns, about half sweaters & cardigans (& one skirt) and half accessories, so an excellent blend of large & small projects. Some of the patterns are preppy, several are rustic. The patterns tend toward the classic, but very wearable! (For reference I am in my 30s with a girly & slightly preppy style.) I adored almost every single pattern, and that pretty much never happens. I highly recommend this book for intermediate to advanced knitters.

The patterns are easy to follow, and there are at least five patterns that I plan on making. I did finish the market sweater and it is beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lived up to the hype. March 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really beautiful patterns! I love in New England where the weather changes may moment to moment and these are some great knits for all types of weather. I haven't started yet but the first thing will definitely be The Burdock Cardigan ( the green one on the cover) but its not am easy decision. These are some great patterns. So glad I bought this book!
