Knit Red: Stitching for Women's Heart Health

Knit Red: Stitching for Womens Heart Health

Knit Red is more than just a book full of striking designs; it’s a special collection of red patterns used to raise awareness and money for the #1 killer of women today: heart disease.  To make this book a reality, author and co-founder of the yarn and fabric retailer Jimmy Beans Wool Laura Zander partnered with the Heart Truth Foundation and collaborated with other talented knitwear designers -- Debbie Stoller, Nicky Epstein, Debbie Bliss, Norah Gaughan, to name a few – who donated their designs to Knit Red to help the cause.   Together, this collection of 30 knits featuring various shades of red yarn is beautiful, informative and heartfelt.  Each pattern is well constructed, modern and perfect for women of all sorts of body types.  In addition to the patterns, Knit Red also offers women important medical information for keeping beating hearts healthy and strong.  Additionally included are touching stories from heart disease survivors and a Heart Healthy Resources and Action Plan, both which aim to help knitters understand the dangers of heart disease and how they (and their loved ones) can fight against it.

 

Knit Red carries an important message for all women, not just knitters, but it especially makes a wonderful gift for female knitting enthusiasts.  As you page through this well-edited book, you’ll find yourself learning, feeling inspired and becoming armed with information that may one day save your life.
