This book incorporates the natural beauty of plant life into twelve elegant garments and accessories. Included in the twelve are four sweaters for every occasion, a stylish cloche, a matching pair of textured socks and mittens, and an elegant leaf-bordered wrap. Each botanically inspired piece offers both charted and written pattern instructions that are easy to follow and fun to knit.
