Echoes: 24 Modern Knits Inspired by Iconic Women features knitwear patterns dedicated to incredible women — both real and fictional — who have influenced the designer Susan Crawford’s life. The array of icons includes authors such as Beatrix Potter and Virginia Woolf, the musicians Cyndi Lauper and Kate Bush, as well as activists, artists, garden designers and more.

This versatile collection features a variety of styles and techniques. It includes cardigans, sweaters, vests, and a dress, as well as shawls, socks, hats, mittens, a blanket, and even a tie. Susan created the designs to resemble heirloom pieces, well-loved and handed down through generations, with stories interwoven into their fabric.
The book showcases the continuing impact of others on each of us, and how inspiration often works: creating layers within layers, echoes within echoes.

Susan Crawford is a British knitwear designer and author with her own hand-dyed yarn range. She is known for her work on modernising vintage knitwear patterns. Echoes is Susan’s eighth book.

“Every piece of this collection is carefully intertwined with the next: stories, inspiration, colours and yarns are all different yet connected, creating a knitted tapestry, echoes of each one woven together. I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I have done!”

Susan Crawford is a British knitwear designer, fashion historian and author, known for her work on modernising vintage knitwear patterns. She lives in the Lake District in North West England — an area with stunning landscapes that also impact her work. Susan is particularly inspired by the stories carried within textiles and the intertwining of history and stitches.

Susan is the author of several knitting books — all of which share her fascination with this interconnectivity. She is appreciated around the world for her beautiful designs which bring these threads together in highly wearable knitwear.

Besides designing knitwear patterns and writing books, Susan has her own hand-dyed yarn range, using custom blends of British breed sheep, spun in the UK and hand-dyed in a kaleidoscope of colours at her studio in a former mill.
