'I think we are all so increasingly obsessed and addicted to the new...that there's a danger of us forgetting to look back, appreciate and hold onto the amazing things, values, skills and traditions that previous generations and the past offer us. I'm really interested in marrying the old and the new...wearing a modern sleek designed hat, hand knitted old-school style in real wool!' - Lily Cole.
These 30 projects are inspired by some of the most popular and fashionable accessories sold by the North Circular. Each project has clear instructions and beautiful photography. There is also advice on ethical buying and sourcing local, sustainable wool. Handmade doesn't have to mean compromising on style or quality.
Katherine Poulton says she was 'wrapped in a handmade shawl the day I was born. Always knitted for as a child, I see the value in things made with love.' With this in mind, she founded North Circular with fellow model Lily Cole. This is her first book.
