Chock full of charming knitting patterns, Green Gables Knits is almost impossible to resist.  The ever creative Joanna Johnson draws the inspiration for this stunning collection of knitting patterns from the children's classic Anne of Green Gables.  Between the stunning pictures and the grade-A knitting pattern, this is a book any knitter will love to add to her library.  


If you're a fan of a vintage or rustic look, this book will immediately capture your heart.  I'm personally a huge fan of the simple, functional patterns found in this lovely book.  As I turned the pages of this book, I couldn't help but fall in love with each of the knitting patterns.  I could easily match each pattern up with someone in my life.  I loved that Johnson thoughtfully included several male-oriented patterns in Green Gables Knits; indeed, her patterns targeted at men seem just as purposefully crafted and designed as the female patterns.  I’m sure I’m not the only knitter out there who has run into the challenge of finding a good pattern for a father or boyfriend.  Johnson’s men’s patterns are definitely praiseworthy, and are worth the cover price of the book.


Throughout the book, Johnson intersperses notable quotations from Anne of Green Gables, along with relevant pictures from L. M. Montgomery’s life.  Seeing the inspirational material next to the knitting pattern gives the content of Green Gables Knits an added depth; I loved seeing literature and history combined in beautiful knitting patterns. Knitters will surely fall in love with this exceptional pattern book.
