Knits from the LYS: A Collection by Espace Tricot captures everything we love about our local yarn stores. Exciting patterns, yarns both familiar and new, and helpful tips on getting the best results. For over 10 years, Espace Tricot has been the LYS (local yarn store) at the heart of Monkland Village in Montreal, Canada. Serving such a creative, artistic and multicultural community directly inspired this collaborative collection.

Designers and shop owners Stephanie Earp and Naomi Endicott have assembled a range of patterns that offer something for every knitter. The 15 knits feature a variety of constructions, difficulty levels and techniques. Challenge yourself or stay in your comfort zone — it is up to you!

The book includes designs from the following designers: Stephanie Earp & Naomi Endicott (designs and creative direction), Carolyn BloomOlesia Lewyckyj JarymowyczJocelyne MalricMona SchmidtAndie Schmidt and Dianna Walla. A French edition is planned to be released in 2024.

Stephanie Earp was born in Toronto, studied in Chicago, Boston and Kingston, and now lives in Montreal. She came to knitting in her twenties when she mistook a copy of Vogue Knitting for Vogue. She made one of the sweaters from that issue and never looked back. Stephanie’s designs have appeared in Laine’s 52 Weeks of Shawls, Pom Pom Quarterly, Vogue Knitting, Knitty, Cascade’s Quick Knit series and Making Stories magazine.

Naomi Endicott grew up surrounded by knitters and makers, but it wasn’t until she took a Saturday job at the local yarn store that she dared to believe she could have a career in knitting. After completing a Master’s in Knitwear Design, Heritage, and Production in Scotland, she returned to Montreal to set up a dye studio and to work at Espace Tricot.

From a design and yarn collaboration, to hosting a virtual design retreat, to taking on joint ownership of Espace Tricot, Stephanie and Naomi’s professional relationship has always been characterized by curiosity and a drive to build skills and knowledge of the craft we all love so much.

Knits from the LYS: A Collection by Espace Tricot is Stephanie and Naomi’s first book. It is a collaborative book where everyone featured — from the designers and sample knitters to the models — has worked or taught at Espace Tricot over the years.
