Textured Knits, by Paula Pereira.

The latest book from Laine is Paula Pereira’s Textured Knits ($50), an enticing collection of 20 garments and accessories.

Paula Pereira’s love of texture is clear from the designs she’s published on Ravelry and those we’ve seen in Laine Magazine, Pom Pom Quarterly, Amirisu, and Making over the years.

This beautifully photographed book is full of intriguing textural combinations – knits embellished with a bit of crochet, embroidery, or even weaving.

“In every pattern in this collection there is a textured accent, bringing a 3D aspect to the fabric,” writes Pereira. “Sometimes it is a delicate detail, other times it is the overall texture!”

I was especially taken with the stitch pattern on her “Cobogó” cardigan, knit with Brooklyn Tweed Shelter.

We may not have every yarn called for in Textured Knits, but we’re always happy to help you find the perfect substitute!
