Crochet Week: Serenity

In honor of KP Crochet’s launch, the Knit Picks staff is taking this week to focus on all our favorite, hook-tastic products and projects.

I, like my fellow coworkers, love to crochet. So I’m so excited to present Serenity, our first very first crochet collection!

This gorgeous book has 8 patterns by 8 different independent designers and I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to work on. We wanted a variety of types of patterns included and we especially wanted to include garments, which is somewhat difficult to find for crocheters. We also wanted to highlight lighter weight yarns – everything from lace to worsted.
