Worsted - A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimee Gille of La Bien Aimee is a knitwear collection featuring 14 patterns by incredible designers. The designers all have their unique style and speak to many kinds of knitters. Now they come together to form a beautifully cohesive collection. You can find garments such as sweaters and cardigans and accessories like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colorwork to cables and textured stitch patterns. This is the 2nd revised edition.
Aimee Gille was born and raised in Kansas, US and later moved to France, where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L'OisiveThe, a wonderful knitting cafe, and later La Bien Aimee, a yarn company whose gorgeous hand-dyed yarns are sold worldwide.
With Worsted, Aimee wanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy. During the challenges of the last 18 months, Aimee found comfort in immersing herself in creating a new yarn base, Corrie Worsted, and inspired by it, all of the designs in the book are worked in worsted weight yarn.
In Aimee's own words: "I hope that you will welcome the adventure of casting on a new project from this book with perhaps some of that beloved yarn you have curated for your stash or why not go on a yarn escapade and find that perfect color of worsted weight at your local yarn store.
