Miriam’s first book, Twist & Knit: A Dozen Knitted Patterns for Handspun, Hand-dyed, and One-of-a-kind Yarns was released July 2010 to critical acclaim. It is now in its second printing, providing a unique perspective on the inter-related nature of patterns and yarn.

Every knitter knows the frustration of running out of yarn. This nagging fear is compounded when the yarn is one-of-a-kind or hand-dyed and simply heartbreaking when you’ve spent hours spinning the yarn yourself. This book offers twelve patterns specifically designed to get the most out of your unique yarn. All of the patterns have small repeats, very flexible gauge, or carefully selected construction to allow you to use every yard of yarn without sacrificing wearability.

  • 12 patterns
  • 27 pages of supporting material, including technique tutorials.
  • Highly versatile patterns for a variety of yarn weights, with instructions given for modifications in width and length.
  • Fully charted patterns
