Whether creamy and warm or wintry cool, white evokes a sense of classic purity. Celebrate its astonishing variety with a collection of 25 stunning all-white projects for intermediate to advanced knitters, all made from the most luxurious yarns ever. From sensuous sweaters for women to adorable baby and children’s outfits to rugged masculine attire, these garments take white to new levels of excitement and opulence. Best of all, you’ll find that using white yarns only draws attention to the gorgeous textural details of each piece—the complex combinations of knits and purls, show-stopping lace, and sophisticated cables. The projects include: a delicate sleeveless tunic from luscious silk mohair and silk; a man’s cabled sweater; and an exquisite hat-and-bootie set that’s soft enough for baby’s tender skin and elegant enough to make a perfect shower gift.

Photographed in stunning natural settings and featuring a clean, stylish layout, this volume is a sumptuous addition to any knitter’s library.
